Perhaps you should run Ubuntu or Fedora. Seriously. Our repos will never, ever compare to the big distros. We don't have a large enough community to build the packages or maintain the repos of the sort the big distros have. We don't have big corporate backing. We will never compete in terms of repo size. If a huge repo with all the latest goodies is what you need then Vector Linux probably isn't for you.
FWIW, VL 6.0 has the largest repo of any Vector Linux version so soon after release. It is growing faster than we've ever managed before. The repo maintainers can barely keep up with it as it is. Even so, it still isn't Ubuntu or Debian or Fedora and never will be.
