And a totally positive review in Linux Format issue 155

They gave a score of:

Features 9/10
Performance 10/10
Ease of use 9/10
Documentation 9/10

Their concluding paragraph:
" Most of all, VectorLinux shows what developers can do when they have a clear goal in mind.  Like Linux Mint, it takes a base distro and applies a layer of polish that adds immeasurably to the user experience".

Outstanding.  Do you know if we made it onto the disk they give with each magazine?

No we didn't unfortunately... I will drop them a line suggesting they do so.

See the bottom section here in this article about finding the best Linux for Windows users:
http://www.linuxinsider.com/rsstory/75859.html
The following sentence is true. The previous sentence is false.

VL 6.0 SOHO KDE-Classic on 2.3 Ghz Dual-core AMD with 3 Gigs of RAM

Another review...

Bottom Line

VectorLinux is one of the most impressive of the Slackware-based Linux distros I have tried. It is easy to use and performs exceedingly well. Aside from its quirky installation, the only real disappointment is the lack of enticing background images. The limited choices are all unappealing variants of the Xfce logo.

I guess the poor soul does not know how to use the + sign (add) and use /usr/share/wallpapers in XFCE Desktop. I am not a Linux insider member though to comment on that. Other than that. OK review.

A little confusion regarding the size of a CD, but otherwise positive.

Installed from a live version, positive other than the install process - didn't like the multiple steps.
