I'm impressed.
« on: June 14, 2012, 11:46:20 pm »
In 2004 I have started using Ubuntu. Since then I have used several Ubuntu derivatives, like Xubuntu, Lubuntu, Linux mint and Easy Peasy. Last version I used was 11.10, but when I tried to install 12.04, it didn' t work (maybe because I'm using an older computer.) I have read about Vector Linux and was very curious. This week I decided to install it. I am very impressed, homage to the creators.

I have an older underpowered Acer laptop, and I'm always struggling with what distro to run that will be lightweight, functional, and that non-technical members of the family can navigate as a daily driver.  I've tried Ubunutu, Lubuntu, Kubuntu, Mint variations, OpenBox distros, just about everything.

Vector was just one of 5 live CDs I burned for my latest quest, and it caught my eye immediately.  Fast, great looking out of the box, and when I googled around for my common tweaks (disabling touchpad tap-to-click, turning off passwords at boot and screen wake), I found the answers easily, sometimes with video tutorials.

Great work, guys.  I never thought I'd be running a slackware variant.  Big fan.
