I found Vector on Distrowatch. When I first started with linux I was determined to try every linux OS I could. I started at Ubuntu and worked my way down. Who would have thought that the number 22 ranked distro (at the time)would be the one I considered the best.
Slackware users like to say...
Use Ubuntu you'll learn Ubuntu, use Fedora you'll learn Fedora, but use Slackware and you'll learn Linux.
Well I feel that way about Vector. Even with all of the add-ons, codecs, drivers, and ready to go propitiatory video, it is still a great place to learn linux.
Oh, and I've got to give the community it's props as well. Excellent group here.
