blog.laptopmag.com: When you turn on your television, it’s hard to avoid those Mac vs. PC commercials. They’re clever, funny, and also misleading.

jamesangus.ucantblamem: It’s a well known fact that if you want a usable linux distribution, you download Ubuntu. However, like many IT pro’s, I like to investigate alternatives and try new things.

Anyone who has run those versions of Vector Linux would find the new version quite familiar. In reality the changes between 5.8 and 5.9, which was released in December, are like day and night.
