    Vector Linux 5.9: Light, fast Slackware-based distro

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I like Vector Linux a lot, mainly for its speed and its ease of set-up and
    | use. (It's also been interesting for this die-hard KDE fan to get to know
    | Xfce.) Congratulations to the VL team for a job well done.

    Vector Linux 5.9 Standard Gold Review

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Vector Linux is a really great distribution, and with this release the rough
    | edges have been removed. Its stable, fast, looks good and has an OOBE that is
    | second to none in the arena. It is highly recommended for both newbies and
    | experts alike. *

    How Vector Linux 5.9 breathed new life into a tired old laptop

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | It was the first laptop I ever bought and cost me as much as a small,
    | secondhand car but there's always been something special about my old Dell
    | 8000 Inspiron. *It's certainly not the specs, at least by today's standards -
    | an Asus Eee would knock it into a ****ed Fedora. *It runs on a 900Mhz mobile
    | Pentium IIIl processor, has 512MB of RAM, an Nvidia mobile 2GO videocard, a
    | 10GB hard disk and a CDROM drive and, er, that's about it. No ethernet, no
    | Wi-Fi, no Bluetooth. * * *

    Vector Linux 5.8 SOHO or lightspeed Kde

    ,----[ Quot ]
    | This is our first encounter with VectorLinux and before we tried it the idea
    | of reviewing Kde distributions was associated to powerful machines but, after
    | analyzing the requirements for this distribution, we decided to try it with
    | the minimum and we must say that we are surprised to see that Kde is able to
    | travel at lightspeed. * *

    | Overall, VectorLinux 5.9 Standard Gold is a very functional release. It looks
    | a lot better than the previous version. I did not encounter any major
    | glitches during the testing. It was a delightful experience seeing the faster
    | boot time of VectorLinux 5.9, as compared to *VectorLinux 5.8. The softwares
    | seem snappier and more stable than the ones in version 5.8 too! * *

    VectorLinux SOHO: A better Slackware than Slackware

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I've always admired VectorLinux for offering what I consider a
    | better Slackware than Slackware. It's beautiful and functional,
    | and would work well for me in my home office. On the desktop it
    | is an excellent distribution with no real problems.
