Well, you know I was impressed with Vector from the beginning, but I just wasn't convinced that it was what I wanted to run on this machine. And now I am.
I still love Debian, and I've got Debian running on another machine. So I still have easy access to all of those skajillion packages anytime I want it. But I'm not really going to need it for my main desktop machine.
I'm using two second hand pentium 3 computers, which I purchased for a total of 135 dollars, because my Penitum 4 computer, which was custom built by my brother for a total of maybe 600 dollars, kept breaking down and requiring more and more money. I don't know what the problem is with that computer, but just about everything in it has been replaced but the RAM, the hard drives, and the CPU. The video card died after a month and a half. The motherboard was replaced twice. I think it was just God telling me to stop investing in new hardware.
Since I'm not into gaming, there's really nothing that I would want to do with one fancy computer that I can't do by dividing the workload between two less fancy computers. The debian computer handles 24-7 tasks like running ktorrent and trancoding avi files into DVDs. The vector computer handles web surfing, studying documentation, playing music, writing, and so on.
I've found that there isn't a Linux distro out there that can cater to everyone's needs. Heck, I haven't found one yet that fits me like a glove. But VectorLinux is easily broken in to be a perfect fit with a little added TLC from the user.
I believe that any Linux distro can be made to do anything any other Linux distro can do, if only the user is knowledgeable enough. But most users have limitations. Assuming that a distro isn't buggy as hell, (and they rarely are) it's the user's limitations that define the appropriateness of one distro over another. I can't get Slackware to work with my DSL connection, but that 'doesn't mean Slackware doesn't work with DSL. Like I said earlier about Vestor, before I saw the light: The fault is mine, not the distros, but the distro has to go.
And there's nothing wrong with that. Most users have limitations, and I have them in spades. The point I'm making, I guess, is that it behooves the user not to blame the distro, Just try something else.
