I just like to introduce myself,
I was an IT professional a few years back primarily dealing in the windows world (hence my discontent for it). I'm currently working as an electrician and a closet geek. I have been playing on computers since I was a child, and have worked on every version of microsoft products from Dos to vista. After talking to co-workers when I was working in the IT side of things I was suggested to try out linux, I built a router first, really liked how that turned out.
I currently have 5 pc's.
1.Older box running ipcop
2.Raid 5 1TB data server (win2k3 till I can get a HW Raid card going)
3.slim client acting as a media box to the tv
4.gf's box (winxp)
5.my box (Vector)
Previously I stuck mostly in the Debian downstreams as they seemed to work the best on my system all though glitchy.
Linux Mint, Dream Linux, Sabayon, OpenSUSE, and PC-BSD
The difference I found between them and vector is quite simple. Vector is better. I have tried, ran, hacked, and have broken many of the distro's listed on distrowatch over the last year. And to date this o/s combined with the community support has out shined any of my previous experiences.
