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 don't understand why there are so many distributions. In the end, the user experience is usually very similar between them. I took that screen shot tour of Vector Linux, and honestly, it is basically how I have my ubuntu system configured.

You don't use a computer for the OS, you use it to run your Applications. In the Linux world, there are only a handful of good actively supported options for each application category, so all distributions ultimately ship with the same ones. Same Applications == same user experience.
