Yes, agreed on Vector.  Its a very worthy reasonably light alternative that
comes in a few flavors, has been around for a good while, and has a decent
set of gui tools.  Vector and Zenwalk being Slackware based may sometimes be
less easy to manage software on than Mandriva or other RPM based distros -
dependencies may sometimes become an issue - and this is one of the things
that all apt- based distros do best of all.  But then, there are other
things they do less well.  Slackware based distros like Vector are, as Bob
notes, usually fastest.  You can't win them all.
