Gateway Solo 2550 ( OLD ) WORKS GREAT!
« on: April 23, 2011, 09:10:26 pm »

pIII 450
192 megs ram
20gb hdd
Microsoft MN-720 WiFi ( using ankh drivers )

I tried Ubuntu, Suse, etc.

Using vector, I was up and running 100% ( including wpa-psk WiFi ) in 2 hours.
And I am no 'hacker', just an average user.

You guys ROCK! I have never tried vector before, reading up that you have been here for a while now, I will spread the word. Fast and Cool linux. This machine would have been forgotten if not for Vector, none of the other flavors were co-operating with the hardware. My new distro for sure.

Thanks. Will make a proper thread soon. Since my last post above, I have migrated 4 of my computers to Vector. I havent used linux and a long time, and was pleased that this distro is so user friendly, even in console. with things like commonly used commands at login. Cheers.
