"I've been impressed with Vector Linux in the past, though
strangely moreso with their free version than the paid edition.
They've generally offered a nice low-power alternative for older
boxes and those of us with newer boxes who just like efficiency. I
was interested to see what (if anything) had changed since the last
time I looked at it.
"The installer hasn't changed at all as far as I can tell. It's
simple, text-based and does its job. The fact that it doesn't have
to load up an entire LiveCD environment means not only will it load
up faster, it won't tax older systems or those of us with real
video cards. (Hear that Ubuntu...?)"
