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.

Thanks for the link, but I was only writing about the VASM (main control centre) utility when saying it felt outdated, and it hardly serves any purpose these days other than changing passwords or adding users. I seem to recall it once had more options.

@DocPain: I believe Matroska is supported, and Flash defintely is already in there. VL is one of the most complete distributions I have come across for media codecs ootb. They can probbaly do it because they are located in Canada, not the US.
