    It is both free as in freedom (you get the souce code, you can improve it, etc..) and free as in beer (as in costing $0 )
    ``Free software'' is a matter of liberty, not price. To understand the concept, you should think of ``free'' as in ``free speech,'' not as in ``free beer.''

    Now I get it, but how big is vector linux

  7. #16
    Vector's installation is all done from a single CD. My last Vector install was under 1.5GB (although you definitely want some breathing room for it).
    There are two major products that come out of Berkeley: LSD and UNIX. We don't believe this to be a coincidence.

    Vectorlinux SOHO 5.0 is awesome. After installing Vector, the only thing I had to tweak was getting my wheelmouse to work. And that was a simple adjustment of xorg.conf.
    I would reccommend this distro to anyone.

    You could try Puppy linux http://www.goosee.com/puppy/

    It can be installed to a hard drive, booted from CD, booted from USB, etc. The CD version loads the entire distro into memory, so it's extremely fast. It uses fvwm95 and jwm for window managers and it's about 50Mbs. That's about as small as you're likely to get with a graphical linux.
