That means more work to you, Bigpaws told me one of the changes is the location of udev related files ;D

Does this mean that VL 6.1 development has to start the moment 6.0 is released?   Does VL have to keep up with Slackware?   ;D

I suspect that is just what it means. We are the tail.  Slackware is the dog.

A thought; will it ever be possible for Vector become a "rolling" distro like Arch, which can update itself continually with the most recent libraries, security patches etc. in order to stay current? I think that would work well for people with broadband.
