VectorLinux 7.0 "Light" was released.
I've been running the icewm flavour of Vector since release date and it's just what i've been looking for. Stable, quick, light, extensible etc. For some reason there's been no suspend / resume problems that soured my opinion of the standard version. I think it's because I suspend from the command line as root in vector light. It offers several options for one to choose at installation of lxde, openbox or icewm based on your hardware capabilities. There's a good but unsubstantial selection of software available therefore as vector is slackware based I use sbopkg to supliment the rather conservative repos. All in all a very good choice for older hardware.
