Thanks for those images Nick! Added them to my collection of Memorabilia here. Wow... I started with Puppy myself and then VL-5.1 which I thought was the "Cat's Meow". Like Lyn said, "We have moved far in that time." Even from the 5.1.
@Nightflier: You'd mentioned "Wbar" not being in VL6.0 Light, right? I was speaking of 5.9 Light where it's listed in here as "vl-bar" in "/usr/bin", and that's a script (which I didn't write---the code's over my little brain cell LOL) which is pointing to "wbar" in the same directory. I usually drag it over from another Slack-based install (or cheat and try the Debian binary and if it works que sera), neither of which I had to do this time as it was already there.
That was one of the things I loved so much about VL-5.9 Light this time because I just installed and had basically no setup requirements... Everything I already use, from PCmanFM, to gpicview, to wbar, was here and ready to go.
But in the interest of this thread remaining on topic me thinks I should pull out since this is on VL-6.0B2.
(P/s: Was by the IRC help channel the other day when the forum was down---what an awesome chatroom you folks have for this distro! Way to go!)
