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 Wink).

Oh, and welcome of course!

Most music on my soundcloud page was arranged in programs running on VL.

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  Grin
