Since early last year I am happy user of VL-5.8 comning over from slackware.
Soon after Vl-5.9 came out and I was supposed to make again new install for which I
was not prepared. So I stayed on with VL58, however realized I have to
move to higher spheres if I want to use more secure and better programs, like skype with
I purchased two versions of VL-59, however, in some way they did not feel good for me.
Besides I dislike uneven numbers.
So I tried to look for other distros. I installed Mandriva and it would not boot since it
had a bug in the kernel, believe it or not. A brand new release. Junked it.
Went to my old friend Fedora which had grown to be a real monster. I aborted the installation
when I asked me for 5 CDs. And their GUI installer should surely not be copied. Not user
Went back to slackware-12.1 since for some reason I can't print anymore in VL58 and that distro
has quite a few old programs I am used to readily installed which I have to pull over into VL, like xpaint, xv, joe ,
mailx you name it every time there is a new version.
Now I am looking forward to VL-6-LIGHT to replace my VL5.8. I have the gut feeling
I will be happy in it again. I need a GUI installer like another hole in the head.
Now my printer port on the MOBO apparently got bust. Luckily I have a spare USB adapter
cable handy. Will check if this was the reason VL58 would not print anymore, so VL6-L-alpha still did
till yesterday and than conked out as well.
The gist... go VL go.
