VL has advanced light years from when VL was first loaded onto a resource poor Compaq Desktop. VL did not turn the Compaq into a workable machine then, however, the old Compaq is still around and runs reasonably well with VL 7.0 light. VL 7.0 light and VL 7.0 Standard Gold run on two other machines as well, and run with out standing performance. It's difficult to adjust coming from Mint 11 katya, but VL makes the transition do-able. So thanks to the minions that contribute to make VL what it is - A first class operating system.
