I will have to try abiword and someone suggested another for excell... Need to find distro for vector or slackware and research how to install.
AbiWord and Gnumeric are in the VectorLinux repos. Run Gslapt and type AbiWord in the top search box and anything related to AbiWord will be listed. Check what you want to install. Same for Gnumeric. Then click on Execute. The packaging system will download any dependencies you need and install the programs. In the IceWM "Start" menu under System, click on Update Menu, then Start menu, Logout, Restart IceWM and AbiWord and Gnome should be in the programs list. IceWM sometimes doesn't put something in the menu, I don't know why. If they're not in the menu you can start them by typing
at a terminal prompt.
I am pointing out that incomprehensible directory names or manu names vague or otherwise, will only hurt the Project chances of success. THis easy to fix point is probably over looked by advanced, post-adjusted users.
Actually, this issue has been discussed extensively. For various reasons it was decided not to stray too far from what you see now. It's not as easy to fix as you think. Surely you're not suggesting that all directory names in Windows are comprehensible???
Changing well-established Linux directory names and arrangements has the effect of making things harder for experienced Linux users and making a distro incompatible with programs that expect a standard Linux file system and file names. There are distros that have opted for "dumbing down" Linux in hopes of making things easier for Windows users. If you don't want a true Linux approach, use one of them. Linux has something for everyone.
I also need a better filer for looking at the drives and folder system, something like like windows commander.
What exact program are you calling "windows commander"? There are various "commanders" based on the design of Norton Commander. If you want a dual-pane file manager in Linux, Midnight Commander gives you that and a lot more and is very easy to use. However, it is very feature-rich and it'll require some learning on your part to take full advantage of what it offers. Open a terminal and type
at the prompt. VL Light also comes with xfe (X File Explorer), which can be set up to display two panes just by clicking on an icon. Want a single pane? Click on another icon. xfe is a very customizable program. Spend some time with it and see what it can do.
I don't know what you're talking about with "virtual folders" and folders above a windows partition. There are folders like /sys whose files don't exist on the drive, but a normal user doesn't need to know that or ever look in those folders. If someone is interested only in My Documents, VL Light has that folder right on the Desktop.
Linux is not Windows. If you won't be satisfied unless Linux becomes a Windows lookalike, I'd stop right now and just stick with Windows. If you want to use Linux, learn the Linux way and don't fight it. It's not difficult! And if you want to be logical, Linux is very logical.
