Here's another one I don't think has been mentioned here, I found it linked from the previous post's review:

And now they did SOHO too:
http://www.raiden.net/?cat=2&aid=279&pid=1

Weird thing is, they found that it lagged periodically. That's pretty different than what we've experienced and read on this Forum. Also very different from the comments from that last review mentioned by nubcnubdo. For example:
Quote
...the Vector Linux boot time was unusual — usually I turn the PC on and walk away to do something else and then come back when it’s booted. Walk away from Vector Linux and you’ll be wasting time.
Quote
Fair review, but doesnt stress just how ridiculously fast this distro is.

I bet is a weird device giving problems to the udev daemon, I got that once with a winmodem. I am not a kde lover, but soho is making to change my mind  ;D, and we have some experienced kde at the forum, and they say is the best kde around... So I think this is just a weird case.

They quoted your re-make of the website text, nubcunubdo, congrats

I noted the oo language issue before, I was trying to make something about it, but the lang packs from open office site are unreachable from here for some reason  :( the page wont load. Thy are very easy to install.

Actually they were my edits of the website text, but we all of us a community have had a bit of input as to the actual wording over the years...

oops, sorry, congratulations to you Larry! I remembered a long thread about that text with a strong nubcunubdo participation, and I related the text to that.
Good work.

PS: Does anybody have that issue at the oo site?

"ZenWalk and the art of not booting" This blogger gave up on Zenwalk and installed VL instead.

I never put too much credence in badly written blogs from poor researchers as I find the above blogger to be. If you can stand reading it notice halfway down the page where he states he has had a number of problems with other distros and surmises that he might have a hardware problem. Well HELLO !!?? Maybe that is why he couldn't install ZenWalk ? Did he bother to check the md5sum and burn his CD at a lower speed. I suspect not....

I like Vector. It looks nice, there's a good mix of software, but again, I didn't detect any speed improvements over either Slackware or Xubuntu.

You aint lookin if you can't see the difference in speed between Vector and Xubuntu.

It says something, if he can't boot ZW, but VL boots okay.

VL 5.8 is also noticeably faster than Slackware 12 on my box.
