VectorLinux: A Desktop That's Slim, Sleek and Speedy

Filed under
Linux

The VectorLinux distro does an impressive job of blending a traditional Linux environment with the performance of other more mainstream offerings.

VectorLinux is not a newcomer to the Linux desktop world. Despite its more than 10 years in development, this distro is not as well known as other Linux choices.

Its motto, however, goes a long way in highlighting its purpose.

"Keep it simple, keep it small and let the end user decide what their operating system is going to be." VectorLinux does exactly that.

The VectorLinux family is a small, fast and light Slackware-based distribution that ships customized versions of Xfce and KDE. These two desktop environments are tweaked to be more user-friendly than other Slackware-style distros.
