Slackware, Slax VectorLinux 6.0 has been released. "The final release of VectorLinux 6.0 (code name 'Voyager') is now available. This release is a major milestone in the ten year history of Vectorlinux. With the unbridled enthusiasm of a community gone wild, we have forged our very own stable GUI installer and our repository now hosts over a thousand packages. VectorLinux is the fastest Linux desktop in it's class. We have exceeded our original goals of VectorLinux 6.0 and produced a beautiful, full featured stable desktop for a rocket fueled experience. The main desktop is based on Xfce-4.4.3 with a custom theme and artwork again unique to VectorLinux. LXDE is installed as a secondary desktop option. Much work has been done on localization and we know users from all over the globe will find VectorLinux a stellar experience."

reads as if it's just plain bad marketing with no real information.

It's again another GUI installer, hooray...we don't have enough already.
Repository with more than 1000 packages. Mh,.. doesn't sound much to me at all, more like the opposite.
Then comes the usual we're-the-fastest-distro-on-planet-and-exceeded-even-our-own-goals-BL A adorned with a bunch of super marvelous stable fast adjectives.

So far, the only good thing I read in this announcement seems to be the good localization.

There's just nothing mentioned that would make this distro anything more attractive special or different to for example Ubuntu.
I'll therefore check their page about more infos and features but doubt that I'll ever try this one out. .. For what?!
