Vector needs more packages in the repository, not more versions. 6.0 is rock solid, looks nice, works great and I agree with a previous poster that 6.1 would be better than 7.0.
The jump in version #'s to 7.0 would or should mean major revisions, and I don't think there will be many (will there?)
Adding a way to use slack builds easier would be a great idea, though I'm not sure how much more help that would be.
As far as ubuntu its nice but there is no support. Go post a question on their forums, you largely get ignored, and then your post gets buried under 100 other posts asking for help that are also ignored. I thought switching to ubuntu was a good idea because they have every linux program in their repository. Thats nice, but the support sucks. I'm still using vector because when I have a question or problem, my questions are almost always answered within 24 hours. My questions usually go beyond the average how do I install something, usually about customizing my desktop and so on, and the bunch of people here have helped me tremendously to learn linux.
I can always count on someone being able to help me here, and the same can not be said for EVERY other distro I've tried.
Soon,I think I will be completely windows free, thanks to the newest wine running windows audio applications much better than ever before. This has been years in the making,
I tried many times to cut that windows umbicle cord but always kept a windows pc around. Vector and linux are now approaching the level of functionality I need for every use,
and soon I think I'll be able to handle all my creative projects on the rock solid crash proof, virus and malware free os of my choice.
Linux, especially vector linux, gives me more power, control and freedom, to use the computer the way I want to, and to customize it to my needs better than any windows or
mac pc could ever do.I'm running linux, windows, dos and even many of my old amiga applications (and GAMES!) side by side seamlessly. Thats a beautiful thing!
