New VectorLinux / Linux in general user!
« on: January 19, 2011, 09:34:30 pm »

Hey everyone!

I am new to Vector Linux and pretty new to Linux in general.
I have played around with a few different distros such as Ubuntu, Fedora, and Linux Mint. I never really dove that far into Linux I basically just ran applications like I do on Windows 7 and installed software, ran updates, and updated sources through the command line. Other then that not much more.

I chose VectorLinux due to the fact that its not as big as Ubuntu or Fedora and I wanted something that I could play around with and help me learn. Yes I know I could learn just as easily on those, but I guess I am just not a "mainstream" kind of guy when it comes to OS. I like to have the ones that not many people have heard of and then just start playing around with them.

Anyways, thats about as far as my history with Linux goes. I just wanted to say hey to everyone and introduce myself here! I am looking forward to have a ton of fun with Vector!
