Well, go enjoy Frugalware. I tried it about a year ago and was not impressed. I tried VL at the end of December 2006 and was impressed.
5.8 SOHO Deluxe is the best that I have ever used. I'm certainly not going anywhere except to the next version of V.L..

I would love to hear what makes Frugalware better than VL. Please do tell, I'm curious.
What are the pros and cons of Frugalware and respectively VL?

I don't think he did - I think he just recently deleted his own account.

I've never used Frugalware, but as far as I can gather it's a bit like Arch Linux (which has a good reputation) and uses the Arch installer. I had a look at the Frugal forum and it seemed a bit unfriendly though.

I suppose what it has that Vector hasn't is that it's a "kitchen sink" distro, like Debian is now or like Slackware used to be, with both KDE and Gnome on board in addition to a full spread of other software and applications. It takes up a full DVD (4,271 MB).

I had look at frugalware, they have some 13 CDs. I took the net CD. To install w/o KDE it has 1,033 MB and 3,502 MB uncompressed files. That would take with my system at least about 12 hours to install. No thank you!

So I would say frugalware is a misnomer.

Being slackware based I was surprised that it found my davicom eth card which neither VL nor Slackware nor 3 other SW based distros were able to configure on their own correctly. It needs the module dmfe and not tulip.

BTW I was wondering how that is with the live VL CD, re. dmfe.
