Last month Vector’s developers announced the first release candidate for Vector Linux 4.0 SOHO edition and here is the review.

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. 2004-04-09 8:40 am 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.
