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've used Vector on an extra Pentium 4 we still have around. It run fast enough but don't count on a repository the size of Ubuntu's. Also not all the programs in the Vector repository are compatible with every release. You can download a program only to find it doesn't run with your version of Vector. Useful yes, but could be better.
