Hi Guys & gals
« on: April 07, 2009, 01:14:39 pm »

Hello to you all my name is Joseph and i live in Sweden, as i write this i have just bought the Deluxe VL 6 and am downloading it. I bought a laptop installed with linux (Ubuntu) see the description below
Laptop Style-Note M741T P8600
2.40 GHz Core 2 Duo, 2048MB, 250GB S-ATA HD 7200rpm, 14.1" TFT Flat Panel (1440x900), DVD±RW S-ATA,
Gigabit LAN, WiFi 802.11a/b/g/Draft N,Bluetooth, 2.0M kamera, Fingerprint. cardreader
All worked well with ubuntu 8.10 but i was not happy with speed, since i have always been a Slackware fun. i wasnt so happy, some time back i searched the web about podcasting with linux and i got tips about VectorLinux and its multimedia packages working fine for podcasting. so i have had it on my mind.
Am looking forward to enjoying VectorLinux on this laptop, and i really want the fingerprint to work and i will be podcasting with it as well as planning to make some audiobooks.
I will let you know about my installation results, am just wondering under which topic i can post my installation review.
Hope to share, learn and enjoy with you all
