Hello vector world
« on: May 20, 2009, 09:55:06 pm »

Greeting from Australia:
I have just installed the VL5.9-64 bit standard and I think I have finally found an excellent balance in a distro.
An ncurser installer that does not hide important information/options behind a fluffy gui ( I hope the later version 6.0 still has this as an option?) and an excellent basic functional system that allows you to get on line to customized later.  I am currently using wolvix as a workstation (also an excellent slackware distro) and have slackware 12.2 loaded for education purposes. Vector looks like a very well polished system.  :)

Welcome to vector

and yes 6.0 has the old installer option you just have to type linux at the prompt and it will revert to the old installer.

hope you enjoy
