New to Vectorlinux
« on: October 18, 2007, 08:54:16 am »

I have used many Linux distributions starting with Mandrake and then varieties of Debian of which my favorite are Elive and DreamLinux (I like minimal desktops).

I was pleasantly surprised when I installed Vector Linux 5.8. The installation went well and the end result looks fine and is fast.

I shall use it for a while get back if I need any help. So far Wifi, Sound, etc all working well/

Hi Martin,

Welcome to VectorLinux.  I'm new myself to the whole Linux scene, and I prefer "minimal" in the sense of just what I need and not a whole lot more.  I have installed Vector 5.8 SOHO, which probably doesn't meet some definitions of minimal, but I figure once I decide what I really want and need, I can trim things down.

Some of us newbies can benefit from your Linux experience once you get familiar with VectorLinux. 

Again, welcome!
