Nice Distro
« on: September 10, 2007, 05:56:07 pm »

Bought a 1gHz PC with 512M Ram for almost nothing and wanted a nice distro for it.  VL std 5.8 is working nicely.  In the past few years tried RH6, Knoppix, Kanotix, Feather, DSL, DSLII and Mepis.  I love the clean install and lack of junk.  Nothing like mod'ing a few text files again to get into the swing of things.  Good Job, keep it up.

Those machines are perfect candidates for VL. I'm currently running VL SOHO a p3 600 with 320 MB ram and it works just fine for daily use. Compiling is a little slower than I like though (that can't go fast enough ;)).

Oh, and welcome of course!

Welcome larkl
We have the same specs!  Not exactly my dream machine, but until I get the parts to get one of my others boxes together, this will do nicely.
You can bet my improved box will be running VL, but even faster  ;D
