Linux VectorLinux is one of those useful but lesser-known Linux distros. It's been around since 1999 and I've used it since 2006, off and on, in the role of a secondary OS. Now, with the disruptive changes Ubuntu forces on its user base with each new release, I've found myself increasingly attracted to Vector's stability and convenience. This article introduces "VL" to those who may not be familiar with it.

I can live with a distro not being a rolling one like arch, gentoo or SUSE tumbleweed, but FOSS changes a a dramatic pace, I need to stay some what current with developments.

So, what's the average time between releases?
How drastic of a change in software do they have?
How good are they at keeping up with security updates?
What is special about the non free versions, what justifies the cost?
