Another decidedly mixed review.... or shall we say not very enthusiastic. http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/vector-7.html
Main points seem to be that the installer has too many steps and asks too many questions as well as being "archaic" - I presume this was the graphical installer though he doesn't make it too clear.
"I think I was seeing various elements from three different desktop environment clash together, with old-new icons, old-new effects, all combined with little regard to the artistic arrangement. It works, but it's just not Monet, more like Dennis from downstairs. Still, as far as Linux desktops go, Vector manages to strike the perfect center of the Gaussian distribution. Indifference is the strongest emotion evoked in the first four minutes of your exploration. "
This was my biggest disappointment with the distribution. I could not find one centralized tool to manage software. Instead, each sub-category has its own launcher. Then, some more appeal for users would be nice, too. "
So he missed Gslapt package manager
Also he didn't like that the weather app was set to a Canadian location...
Over all not good, but I suspect it suggests some minor tweeks we could have, maybe we need a first use wizard or read me with instructions on how to tweek the desktop at first use?
