What about "pointing the way" or something like that (I am thinking in spanish: "mostrando el camino", could exist a better translation  ;).
It matchs with the math sense (oviously a vector "points"), and if you are not a math guy has the "leader" sense, since VL is the leader and is pointing the way to all other linux distros  ;D.

Vectorlinux..when light is not fast enough.

Something like that.

I would like to see VL break the image of "being good for old hardware", since a lot of people just think of us as only good for that.

If the tagline touches on speed and stability, I think that would sum up VL very nicely. 

My input:  Vector Linux:  The fast and stable (distribution?)

Another option:

VECTORLINUX:
Just works. Fast.

Conveys speed and stability - both great aspects of VL.

First impression of "seatbelts" was great, but then concern came over the 'you need a safety net to use Linux' fears.

Maybe if it's accompanied by the speed reference:

VECTORLINUX: FAST
Seatbelts required.

"Pointing the way" is fine, but "revealing the path" or even "illuminating the path" sound like loose translations of the Spanish you gave.

Remark re current font and tagline quality: The reddish print is out of focus (fuzzy) and lacks solidity. Doesnt really convey solidity, stability. Maybe: solid white letters, slanted perhaps. Slanted letters give impression of motion (speed).



VectorLinux
                         ...speed, performance, stability




1. speed: we got your optimized fast linux right here

2. performance: here "performance" is a fancy word for "just works", "out of the box"

def. the fulfillment of a claim, promise, or request; implementation
http://www.m-w.com/dictionary/performance
def. the execution or accomplishment of work, acts, feats, etc.
def. the manner in which or the efficiency with which something fulfills its intended purpose.
http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/performance

3. stability: based on Slackware, rock-solid reliability

Speed, Performance, and Stability are the three qualities most important to VectorLinux, probably in that order. And VectorLinux excels in these three qualities: It's fastest, it does everything out of the box well, and it's stable, unbreakable. Visitor is implicitly invited to try it and see for himself/herself.

Generally, VectorLinux has enjoyed friendly reviews written by partisans like Don Parris and Caitlyn Martin. The day may come when the reviewer is more impartial or even skeptical towards this distro. You can count on such a reviewer to comment the slogan in his screed. The tagline "speed, performance, stability" would challenge a reviewer to evaluate VL by these three criteria, in which case VL cant lose, cuz VL is superlative in all three.

Are there other characteristics which define VectorLinux like those three? ...characteristics that make VL stand out in the crowded field of Linux distributions?

(IMHO "speed, performance, stability" looks better in lower case, not caps.)

I was going to say the same thing. VectorLinux is GREAT for current hardware. It provides a fast, solid foundation on which a user can build whatever kind of system he or she wants.

I figured I'd save my thunder until I saw whether it made the cut.<g>

I don't know what percentage of Linux users are female. Whatever it is, we do need more. We won't get them if there's too much testosterone apparent in our public face.

GrampaGeek and I are not fans of auto racing. It's smelly, loud, wastes a lot of gas, and pollutes the air, and we find it boring besides. I would not be favorably impressed by a racing metaphor on the VL home page. That said, there are plenty of women who like auto racing. But they're not "gentlemen," and neither are all drivers.

OK i changed it back to "when choice matters" for the moment. The racing metaphor I thought was good till I was reminded of the times we live in................ :( . For now im more interested in the look. The solid light yellow text look ok with the fancy "VECTORLINUX" graphic? Keep the tag lines coming maybe we can choose a top five then a poll?
cheers,
Vec
thought of another "Houston we have ignition......."

Think in terms of a memorable slogan like you were an ad executive putting vector out for the first  time on a national television campaign.............like "fresh fast and for you"
This should be fun................ ;D

We could play up the fact that Vector doesn't drag you into the upgrade treadmill, and is therefore environmentally responsible both in terms of material and energy consumption.

"Vector Linux: Staving off the entropic heat death of the Universe one install at a time."

Not slogan-y enough I guess...
