We have a new review for 6.0 std gold................http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/vector.html
Seems they thought the install a bit long but liked the end result...................... ;D

cheers,
Vec

I sent a mail to the author the same day the review went out, explaining the 'missing points'.  He said that he'll gladly try next vl versions, and he'll post my mail as a comment.

New review.
http://www.raiden.net/articles/review_vector_linux_6_standard/

That's an excellent review. Fair too, I'd say. The only criticism I saw was a reasonable one:

" if no partition exists, or you want to modify the partitions, you are forced to dive into Gparted to make the required changes before continuing.  This could be a hindrance or show stopper for new users, but this won't be any trouble for more experienced users. "

Nice to see more folks noticing how cool VL is :)

The latest copy of Linux Format (130) includes Vector Linux 6.0 Light on the cover DVD.

:) Nice to know Vector gets noticed occasionally.

The complete lack of mention in this weeks distrowatch weekly (considering it's topic) is approximately equal to a mention, don't you think?
link: http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue=20100301#feature

It would have been nice to see VL thrown into that comparative review, even of the outcome wasn't favorable. It's like saying that I'll be comparing cola soft drinks this week and up for review are: Coke, Jolt, and RC.  No wonder the comment section has been largely underutilized this week - a major contender was left out.  I thought a comment here would be better served than there. Edit: And, of course, my opinion is mildly biased ;)

Nah not really. If you think about it, it would be unfair to compare VL with those others. Although they use the XFCE window manager as does VL, they really are not in the same class. VL is ,most of the time, compared to much larger distributions like Ubuntu, Fedora, etc. I haven't done much research on it, but I didn't see anywhere (quick google searches) , where those others were compared with such distros. Mostly they're compared as they are there on the DW site ... with each other.

The current DW Weekly mentions and links to the above article.....

VL 6.0 Light is compared to Puppy, SliTaz, #!, DSL, etc.....

Kind of a confusing review. I have VL 6.0 Light installed on an IBM 570 (PII 300mhz, 320mb RAM) and it is very usable (as long as you don't want to watch streaming video ;-) ) - every bit as usable as Puppy on the same machine.....

Anyway, just thought I'd post this as an FYI.

Whoa! Looks like we just broke the previous record of (AFAIK) 5th place on DW  on the "Last 7 days" setting. We made 4th today!!!   ;D ;D ;D

Not that I place much importance on it, but it is always fun to track and then read the discussions about it, LOL.

Very nice review and she has some good points. I do disagree about the multiple versions being confusing as I think the versions are well documented as to there intended audience and she makes a bold statement in the beginning about comparing VL to commercial offerings but really never follows up on that. She does have a good point in that we need to figure out a way to give VL some buzz, because as you all know we are very very good and others should know it. OH yeah and vl7 will be out long before the fall of 2011................. ;D

Not the most positive review - but it has some good points.
