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 used vector for a while a few years ago and I was impressed with it. It was quite snappy on my system, actually one of the fastest distros I have tested behind arch and gentoo. Considering it's decent feature set, it was actually quite light weight as well. As I recall media codecs were pretty much all there as well, I believe it played pretty much any video format I threw at it.
