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.

RE[3]: Vector Linux / Trinity TDE

Member since:

I only have 1GB of memory in this piece of shit.

That is more than enough memory. Heaps. Oodles.

As I type this in Firefox 11 running under KDE 4.8.2 (with desktop effects, strigi and nepomuk all running, and nepomuk given twice the normal memory allocation to improve performance), the system monitor is showing only 513 MB memory used. Less than half of your memory.

KDE4 should run faster for you than KDE3 if your system has a GPU. If it doesn't, there still shouldn't be much in it.

KDE4 is now more familiar since it really has started competing well feature-wise with KDE3

KDE4 absolutely spanks KDE3 feature-wise, as well as in supported applications.
