Foresight Linux is good

Foresight is awesome, finally gave it a shot and it is now my main distro. I am running it on my desktop pc, which is an Intel E8500 with a Nvidia 7600gt graphics card. It runs fast and seems way faster than Ubuntu 8.10 did. The only extra I installed was the extra codecs for MP3 playback. Flash works great and doesnt have any flicker to it.

Vector Linux 5.9: Light, fast Slackware-based distro

Filed under
Reviews

Vector Linux 5.9, released in late December of last year, is a Slackware 12.0-based distribution that uses Xfce 4.4.2 as its default user interface. Generally speaking, Xfce requires less horsepower than other UIs, like GNOME and KDE, and so Vector Linux bills itself as an excellent operating system to install on older, lower-powered computers.
