Jumped Ship
« on: December 13, 2009, 08:53:58 pm »
Hello everyone, Im JC from the midwest, whos now stranded in the deep south (USA).

I am a long long time user of Debian (Xfce), and for the last couple of years Xubuntu. I did touch the slackware side a few times with an early version of ZenWalk, and Wolvix 1. I had been hearing alot about Vector being the "shiznit" of slackware based distros, and even the whole Linux community, but I didnt think I knew enough to become a full time user of a slackware based distro. All I can say is WOW! I decided to back up my Xubuntu, as a just in case, and commit my whole hard drive to Vector. The only thing Im left wondering is, why did I wait so long? I have live CD's of everything under the sun, but I have never used, or seen a distro so responsive, and fast. I do have a few questions Ill be asking in the Vectorbie station, but nothing as drastic as I had been imaging. Either Vector is one easy to use distro, or Im not so dumb after all.

Any way thanks to the creators for making such a kick ass distro. Im hooked and will be spreading the word, that slackware doesnt have to mean hard-to-use-ware.

Welcome to vectorlinux.

I used red-hat and suse in the past but I found them no easier to use, bloated and slow.

Vectorlinux is fast, effecient and generally as easy to use as most distros. I'm glad you found it...

Hi JC,
         I'm somewhere deep in the northeast  ;D . I'm glad that you made the decision to give VL a try. I'm even happier to read that it is performing in a style that has you WOW-ing  8) . I hope that you will find this forum and community as helpful and friendly to all of your questions. I'm sure that in almost no time you'll find yourself giving answers too  :) . I look forward to seeing you making this your new home of the Linux world.
