I posted a challenge to post # 55 at Distro Watch to take me on with their comment. I will personally Handel this one, if they respond.

WE have had a few mentions there over the years. I suppose ASK and you will/willnot receive. I will email the editor about VL 6 as a featured OS and see what reply we get. Any suggestions further than that please let me know. Keep on Keeping on.

wcs,

I've seen Linuxformat here in the US, and I agree with you - it's a top-notch magazine, better than the Linux mags put out here in the States, but that's just my $0.02 worth.

Cheers,
John

This is from Reno, the home of the SQI and Computers for Kids program.
 I called David today and Thanked him on behalf of the entire VL communty for his good work and dedication.

Fellow Lions,
Please review the attached emails.

This morning, the Reno Cigar Lions provided computers (loaded with Vector 5.8 Standard Gold Linux) to the Red Cross Evacuation Center for evacuees from the Angora Fire at South Lake Tahoe (http://www.latimes.com/news/local/la-me-fire27jun27,0,1072673.story?coll=la-home-local) to access email and the Internet. Charter Communications provided Cable TV and Internet access plus personel to install everything at the evacuation center.

Charter Communications donates equipment to the Lions Computers for Kids project and has donated Cable Internet service for C4K 'Kids Cyber Cafes' at area non-profits.

Please direct questions to me.

Thank You,

David Dehls
RCL Branch Club Coordinator

Caitlyn Martin of "O'Reilly Network" just did what I thought was a pretty good review on our VL-SOHO 5.8. I didn't get the chance to read the one she did on our Standard as I'm rather pressed for time tonight. But I thought I'd post it here if anyone was interested? This link came by way of the "Recent Reviews" section of DistroWatch, middle-lefthand column:

http://www.oreillynet.com/linux/blog/2007/06/kde_built_for_speed_vector_lin.html

Enjoy folks!

Good choice, Darrell.  I've found that Handel's music is wonderful for soothing frayed nerves and calming things down.  "Water Music" is an especially good choice..

Oh, wait a minute...  you meant "handle", didn't you?   Grin

Just got Linux Format (UK) in the post and there is a mention and a review in it.
In the "Newsdesk" section there are a few lines announcing the partnership with Mad Tux and a mention of computers on sale there.

More interestingly, on their Distrowatch section, there is a full page (well, almost) dedicated to the new 5.8 SOHO.
Because it isn't in their website yet, I'll give you the main things:

Snip


It was a good to see the review, as said it is the UK's best selling Linux magazine.  Will be even better when the the non linux computer magazines carry a review and a copy of Vector on their cover discs.  Slowly the non Linux magazines are starting to show an interest and cover discs with versions of Linux (usually an Ubuntu derivative).  Long may this continue :-)

Here is another good stat site osnv.org. Click on Apps for the digital Commons. You will see a revolving display under the project. Example for Open Office there are 5.3 million lines of code. If it was paid for it would be $87.5 million $ USD. And 152 active developers.

How come VL Standard isn't listed on this page at Xfce.org?

Here's a positive, upbeat review of VL 5.8 SOHO, linked from tuxmachines.org:
