Returning to Vectorland
« on: October 24, 2012, 06:38:29 pm »
 Hello everyone, it's been a long long time since I visited (think back to the first SOHO version , lol)  Still around and using Slackware, most of the time at least. Glad to see that Vectorlinux has grown over the years. I've tried many distros since I first found Slackware 8.1, but it's hard to like any of the others as much as VL>and when I found the 64bit version had emerged, I had to get it.  I still see some usernames I remember,so hello again to all of you, and to the newer members that I haven't spoken with yet.

it is good to see you back. I think you could have at least sent a post card , haha  ;D
 More good stuff coming in VL's next release cycle. Hope you'll be here with us throughout.

Thanks for the welcomes, it was a long weird twist of events that led me off into 64bit land. Now it seems like all computers are 64bit, new ones for sale ready-made, I mean. Working with Vector was a good experience, I remember copying one version and mailing them out to new customers, and working for a couple of weeks or so with a nice fellow from the UK back when we were trying to browbeat GnuCash into working with VL. I strayed into Debian, then Aptosid for the bleeding edge over the last three years or so. But I got tired of having to completely update my distro every week and breaking stuff that worked! Bleeding edge is for the younger folks I suppose-now I just want things to work when I need it. I hope I can recall, and relearn enough to help others.
