Got a question, does VL Light run in memory or is this thing running as fast as freaking hell from disk?  Don't answer that, just wanted to say that this is one fast distro.

Well, all I have to say is that I'm running it on an old computer and if I didn't know what was in this machine, I would think that it has a core2 duo and a whole lot of RAM.  The response time is just INCREDIBLE.  I'm not exaggerating, test it out for yourself.

Hmmmm... Maybe I'll have to give it a try on my 3.33Ghz machine. I wouldn't want anything to blow up though.  :D
