Gentoo, Zenlive, or Vector Linux??
Hey i tried Ubuntu, installed KDE on it too. it was ok but i didnt really like it it was kinda slow on my comp (Pentium 3 - 384 RAM).
Iv been looking around and am considering downloading one of these:
Gentoo, ZenLive, Vector Linux SOHO
wich ones have you tried and how do you think each one would run? (faster, slower, normal)

Just my opinion(s)...
Perhaps there was something wrong, making Ubuntu run slower than it should have.
Gentoo won't be noticeably faster than Ubuntu, and some users find it difficult to install.
Live CDs usually run much slower than a fully installed distribution.
Vector might show a small amount of noticeable speed.
You might want to consider using a lighterweight desktop environment such as Xfce, or simply go with a window manager such as Fluxbox, IceWM, etc.
Whatever you should decide, make it a fun learning experience.
