Here the new VL 6.0 gets mentioned on a German Linux news site.

http://www.pro-linux.de/news/2009/13841.html

Some negative comments about the screenshot, because it's KDE and the announced standard version should be XFCE.

Cheers.

A nice mini-review of VL 6.0 which has also been picked up by LinuxToday:

That would be my responsability, was unintentional of course, I only had Deluxe installed at the moment. I am installing STD now and uploading some screenshots. My apologies to the good German guys Smiley

EDIT: There is screenshots of VL running Xfce also though, KDE is part of the Deluxe 2nd CD that is why they are there.

Well looks like this thread updated before I had a chance. I wanted to confirm that KDE 4.x IS included with the Deluxe version, it is on the second CD as rbistolfi has mentioned. The default desktop environment of the Deluxe is XFCE, if you do not choose to install and select another as default.

I wrote an article about PekWM and how, as a tabbed window manager, it helps manage screen space when working at low resolutions (netbooks, legacy hardware).  It just so happened I used VL 6 to write the article and take the screenshots, some of them with VL-Hot running.  VL gets a couple of mentions and a link as well just because it was what I happened to be running  Grin Grin

Good review Caitlyn,

Those minimalist WM are getting more market share since netbooks boom.  It's good to inform people about them.

I hate to be picky, but the link to vectorlinux goes to inexistent http://broadcast.oreilly.com/2009/03/www.vectorlinux.com .

would it be possible to fix it?


Thank you!

Very nice article, Caitlyn. If I had a low-res machine, I'd be very interested in giving PekWM a try based on what I read and your screen shots.

Wow, that article looks pretty good.
 Does PekWM have capabilities for personalization as far as appearance and all those goodies too?

PekWM supports themes but that's about it.  It's pretty bare bones.  I use it as a building block of a desktop environment, not stand alone.

He totally missed the boat on package management. Vpackager is not used (though you wouldn't know this from looking at the menu). Hey, reviewer--SLAPT-GET and GSLAPT! You can't get much easier than that.

I wish people would look at documentation. There's an icon on the desktop. Did he miss that or would he lose his geek cred by reading documentation?

It has a long and exhausting installation

...hmmmm,..not sure why he would experience that.  Maybe he installed a different Vector than I did  (LOL)..I never found it a "long and exhausting installation".  I'm also certain that my computers that are running Vector are older than his hardware, too.
