Short answer and personal opinion: Not safe.

I no longer use VL as my daily driver. No one is working on it. It is way behind on patches and updates.

If all I did was read the comics and headlines on a computer isolated from the rest of my network, it would be fine. However, I do banking, pay bills, social media and remote work. I want a high level of safety.

No networked computer is totally safe. The best we can do is manage the risk. Keep it up to date. Use a firewall. Turn off unnecessary services. Watch where you go on the net and what you say. The list goes on. It's life.

Further discussion on this is invited and encouraged.

Hi nightflier,

Serious question in light of the above please; is it not safe to use VLocity 7.2 any more? (I'm still using it and am posting from it now.)

Thanks. I'll check it out when I have a chance to get VLocity 7.2 installed on my computer (I plan on getting a larger capacity hard drive for it first).

If you insist on installing VL, at least grab 7.2.

It just now occurred to me - where can I get a copy of 7.2 from (the Vector Linux website only goes up to 7.1)?

Another one: flburn in VL Light will do it. You can install that in STD as well.

But can it be used to create and save a CD image file without actually burning it to a CD?

I use K3B for all my burning needs. It has the option of creating an image and/or writing to a disc.
