Review: VectorLinux 5.8

Filed under: Distributions, Slackware — tuxicity @ 12:01 pm

VectorLinux, a lightweight, fast Linux distribution for the x86 platform, just released its new version 5.8 this week. This user-friendly distribution makes the average computer user’s life easy by supplying office software, Web browsing, photo editing, and archiving on top of a fast, clean Xfce window manager.

Vector is based on Slackware Linux, but adds features that Slackware lacks, such as slapt-get for package management and a Linux 2.6 kernel, a few proprietary programs and plugins (such as Flash) and some eye candy.
