Vector Linux has always interested me because of its purpose and origin: a simplified distribution from a Slackware base. Last month Vector’s developers announced the first release candidate for Vector Linux 4.0 SOHO edition and here is the review.
A First Look at Vector Linux 4.0, SOHO Edition

The reviewed version is a Release Candidate 1, not a final version.
I tried Vector, didn’t like the install, when it was installed it was very nice indeed. I did not keep it on though, I honestly do not like Slackware based distros, dunno why, just personal opinion.
HOWEVER, they offer a live version, very nice indeed, I kept a copy of that.
I have played around with an older version of Vector Linux. It’s useful because it allows one to install on old hardware (Pentium I with minimal graphics cards), making them great graphical terminals combined with rdesktop.
For personal use I’d go for something else completely, but as low cost terminal solution for small/medium businessess it’s great.
