Alternative OS For Older Computers Part Two of Three

In Part one I explained How I was looking for  Alternative OS to Run on Older Computers. I explained that Some of the Newer Versions (Distro’s) of Linux would not Run or where Painfully Slow on a Older Laptop or Desktop. I narrowed my Search Down to 3 finalists and Below is Number Two.


Vector Linux


 Speed, performance,stability
these are attributes that set Vector Linux apart in the crowded field of Linux distributions.The creators of Vector Linux had a single credo: keep it simple, keep it small and let the end user decide what their operating system is going to be. What has evolved from this concept is perhaps the best little Linux operating system available anywhere. For the casual computer user you have a lightning fast desktop with graphical programs to handle your daily activities from web surfing, sending and receiving email, chatting on ICQ or IRC to running an ftp server. Power users will be pleased because all the tools are there to compile their own programs, use the system as a server or perhaps the gateway for their home or office computer network. Administrators will be equally as pleased because the small size and memory requirements of the operating system can be deployed on older machines maybe long forgotten.
