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.
