Impressed with Live CD version of this OS!


Have tried a couple distros and came across this one. Wow! Very quick from running on a Live CD and things seemed to fly on my machine (2009 Dell Windows XP). Immediately connected to the internet and was a pleasure to check out with spare time. I have never used Linux before and am checking out various distros now. The few others I've tried either had problems booting or I just didn't like the execution of the OS or the it appeared "clunky" except for Zorin OS which looked good also and ran with no problems. Unless I find a better one from here on out, VectorLinux looks like the one for me. I'm up for other suggestions. Thanks!

Mint is also popular. Even though it's not Linux, pcbsd is very user friendly too. Still, if vector works with your hardware and network, go for it. Be sure it works with all your printers, Web cameras, scanners, sound cards and graphics cards (which should always be nvidia)

Another choice to make is which desktop to run, assuming vector gives you that choice.

Isn't it "a bit" outdated?

You can update individual apps with gslapt/slapt-get meaning you can keep running a system that suits your machine especially old kit and at the same time run a newer browser.

Vector is rock solid.
