I can care less about the comparison of the distro thing there... I like the penguines, ignoring the distro stuff behind it all, this looks awesome. Thumbs Up on this one :)

Hi,thanks for the fast reply.Here is why vector is better than kubuntu or any other debian based distro:

1.Its faster (alot faster ) on booting time.(sick of waitng for hotplug?)

2.You have the easy updates too.Vector hast apt-like package tool,called slapt-get which can ignore dependancies in packages you select (unlike atp-get),with the official vector repo (where dependancies are tracked,but you CAN ignore them) plus the enourmous linuxpackages.net repo (vect soho 5.1 is compatitable with slack 10 and 10.1/2 packages)
3.You will be able to compile almost any package from source (configure>make>make install) without errors..
4.You have VASM -this is a graphical user interface system tool with which you can configure everything on your computer:Hardware,filesystem or partitions,xwindow,users,boot procedures,Network,you can even make it autosetup everything.
I found this tool to be extremely good,because it has no-gui failsafe mode and if you had made a big mess with this tool and midninght comander you can fix it.
5.If you want to have kde,install Vector SOHO,which is for you.The standart version is good too,but its with xfce as default and its made mainly for old hardware (speed,get it?)lol
...the instalation looks alot like
(k)ubuntu's

hi,
just recently i've download the iso from their site but didnt really install it by now, so does the buzz around vector is that true i've read alot of reviews saying this is the fastest non source based distro but i'm not really sure if it would be right for me to switch from kubuntu after 3 years with linux, i'm really immpressed with kubuntu one disk install, easy upgrades, fresh new packages of kde, and it really does work out of the box so i guess my main reason if to make the switch is does vector can be upgraded to a newer version with their package manager?
