Hi. My name is Tim and I have just installed Vector 5.8 SOHO on 2 of my computers.
1 Acer Travelmate 230 (TM230X) with Celeron 1.7GHz, 20gig HD and 384 meg of ram.
2 Home built desktop: Shuttle MN31N M/b 1gig DDR PC3200 ram and 40 gig HD, using my older Nvidia GF4 MX440 graphics card.
This Vector Linux OS is just GREAT, does all I need and much more and I feel is the best version Vector have put together to date.
I have been using and trying many different flavours of linux since 2001 and have looked at Vector since 4.0 VL and 5.0 SOHO.
Until recently, I have been using PCLinux .92 in conjunction with Win XP Pro on these machines but after trying the newer PCLinux 2007 OS (which I didn't like...reasons to numerous) I went looking for an alternative. Of all the Linux OS's I tried, the only one that performed flawlessly and gave me all the options I wanted was Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO.
Well done people, I am very impressed and thank you all for a grand OS.
Other Linux distro's I have tried, and liked:
simply Mepis 6.5
Sam Linux 2007 (this I liked most until I tried Vector)
Kanotix 2007 RC6 " thorhammer"
Kiwi in BC Canada.
