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 was using it for some time in the past, but it seemed like a stalled project at times, so I eventually dumped it.

I used to run Vector around 4 years ago, but sometime around then (may 3 yrs ago, iirc), they tried to introduce a paid version of sorts and start a paying-members club/forum or something. The devs/team took a bit of stick from their users and things were in limbo for a while. No idea what's going on now, though.

Somewhere within that timeframe, I recall their project website getting hacked a couple of times as well.

Oh yes, the VL club was hot on the heels of the Mandriva Club. Both didn't take off. I think it was around 2006/7 or so.
