Remember this review of 6.0...http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/vector.html
This is where an experience linux user (of other distro with different bases) gave vl a shot. He thought vpackager was our package management software.
This got me thinking, how intuitive is it to a new user that one we have a lot more packages to offer and two where to find them.
Then I played around with another distro that did something interesting. When I looked under each category in the menu they had way more apps than could conceivably fit onto the disk. When an app was clicked in the menu it activated an installer and installed it for you. Nice, because this really freed up what you could fit on the iso disk.
Then I though back to my first days of Linux on ubuntu where they had a separate installer in the menu for newbies who did not know the names of the packages they would need but would at least know what caterory that package would belong to.
So I came up with this for VL.
Just install with installpkg and test it out and let me know what you think.
It's not a replacement for GSlapt, it's just a simple quickpick selection in each category of the xfce menu. It does introduce GSlapt though, so the next reviewer should get it right. :-)http://vectorlinux.osuosl.org/stretchedthin/vl-qwikpicks-0.10-i586-1vl70.txz
Just download and install with installpkg.
Want to here some thoughts before/if I put it in the repo.
