Title: New to Vector
Post by: Apoplectic on August 24, 2012, 08:52:32 am
Got Vector Light up and running just now.  I've always been a Windows guy, but I'm getting into cooking ROM's on Android phones and such, and a lot of what you can do on these phones can only be done on Linux.  I figured it was free, so why not?

So yeah, hey.

Welcome Apoplectic!

I like your name.  And I also like Webster's 1913 ed which I read via goldendict.

Anyway, to the merits (Cooking Roms):  I am a member of the linphone user's group and it is very active with linux users who are apparently using linphone on their cell/smart phones, something (a cell phone) I am happily without.  But I do use linphone constantly on my VL 7 standard system.
