Vector Linux Light 7.1 is released and available for download. A big "Thank You!" goes out to all the contributors and testers who helped make this possible.

The "lightness" of this version is relative to our Standard version, and is achieved by using the lightweight IceWM window manager in place of the XFCE desktop environment. You may also choose barebone X-windows with just TWM. Otherwise, the base system and installation experience is the same as Standard.

IceWM is old school. It uses a manual approach, much like a stick shift instead of an automatic transmission. It doesn't change unless you tell it to. Configuration is managed by editing plain text files. To make things easier and get you started, some of the most common tweaks are also scripted and controllable by a GUI app.

Target audience consists of those who like and prefer IceWM, owners of older computers, and users who want a minimal, yet functional, starting point for their own creation.

Minimum recommended hardware: an Intel Core class CPU, 1 GB of  RAM, and 10 GB of drive space.
Minimum required hardware: a pae-compatible CPU, 256 MB of RAM and 4 GB of hard drive space.

Tell us about your experiences with Light. Please specify 32 or 64-bit, and whether you chose to install IceWM or not.

pita..curious if you notice any issues with fluxbox 1.3.6 or 7

I find the once (previous) right click on the panel for panel menu now a middle click and the slit right click problematic but the desktop right click menu works fine so far including the configure features for panel and slit

I found that 1.3.5 does not have the issue but still unclear on the nessessity to upgrade

as a fan of fluxbox I thought you may offer insight..

Yes the click on the panel changed as you noticed. I do not see any problem with slit.

Check: http://fluxbox.org/news/
for changes.

A common fluxbox "starting point" meta-package would be nice to have. Something with more features and more complete config, but geared to assist users creating the fluxbox desktop they want.

I run my law office on this os.   No clue what msexcel+vba is but gnumeric reads excel files I think and libre office has a good spreadsheet which I know reads excel. 

No wordperfect on linux anymore.  I used it too and miss it.  Libre Office writer is almost as good, but I use lyx for everything.  There is a learning curve with lyx. 

No clue what foxit pdf reader is but I use okular which is better than anything on any os for pdfs. 

I us google chrome for browser and it works great.  Firefox is occasionally needed as backup.

Is there a listing on this site or a way to find out

More specifically,
The software I use are 1. msexcel+VBA  2.wordperfect, 3. foxit pdf reader 4. some kind of web browser 5. thunderbird email client.

I've done searched on the FAQ and didn't see a simple list.
Any hints in this direction will be appreciated.
