VectorLinux 7.0 - Sparta belongs to Spartans

Vector Linux is not the first, nor the third name to come up when discussing the distribution of choice with your friends over a Friday afternoon tea freshly returned from spa. The main reason is the somewhat geeky background it has, the pure and ascetic pedigree of Slackware. But Vector tries. And so I try [sic].

Vector 7.0 is the latest edition, released just a few weeks ago. My previous experience with this distribution was reasonable. It sure did not blow me away, but the overall composition was decent, given its mission statement. But time takes its toll. Desktops are becoming more and more refined, easier to use, quicker to please the itchy crowd of users. In this battle, Vector goes against a mighty fleet of friendly, mainstream distros. Let's see how it fared in the Dedoimedo arena of torture.
