    No half-nude geeks in sepia, I'm afraid. Instead, you get a review of VectorLinux 7.0, a Slackware-based distribution, including a brief installation overview in a dual-boot configuration with Windows 8, Wireless, Samba, look & feel, multimedia playback, applications choice, package management, configurations, printing, resource usage, stability, suspend & resume, some small problems, and more.

    Cheers,

    I don't always agree with your reviews Mrk but this one is fair. Vector is a great distro for sure, particularly for older hardware but there are a few niggles. Suspend / resume started playing up for me so I binned it. However in most respects it's a very capable distro.
