Hello:
I will try to contact the manufacturer and ask that question. Thanks for the heads up.
regards

From experience with machines of similar specs, the Linutop will run much more efficiently with Vector.
Laptop: IBM X60s (Centrino/Duo, 2gb ram, 80gb hd) VL 6.0 Std
Netbook: HP Mini (Intel Atom 1ghz, 2gb ram, 16gb SSD + 8gb flash ) VL 6.0 Std
Desktop: Dell Dimension 5150 (P4 3ghz, 2gb ram, 80gb hd) VL 6.0 Std
Wife's Desktop: Gateway (P4 2ghz, 1gb ram, 80gb hd) VL 6.0 Std

On the Linutop, VectorLinux would be twice as fast as Xubuntu.

I guess the question "Yeah, but does it run Linux?" is already answered here.

Sorry, couldn't resist ...

how about this?
 Plan A:  we contact the manufacturers, and hope that works.
 Plan B:  we purchase a review.demo unit and install VL on it. and publish our own review.
            that way we can  share in revenue from the hardware sales originating on our site.
 Plan C: some how come up with money for Plan B :)
           
  well basically, if we demonstrate on one unit that we are much better than Xubuntu etc..
 i hope the manufacturers will wake up and smell the coffee :)

 metvas, what is the response so far like?

I don't know. They're cute, but would I really want a computer with just a 10 gig drive and 128 megs of RAM? And a USB 1.1 port??? Welcome to 1998!

I can think of better ways to spend $99.
