VectorLinux 5.9 Final GOLD Edition

The development team of VectorLinux have announced the release of VectorLinux 5.9 Final GOLD edition. This is the fruit that has resulted from several months of coding, debugging and testing by the core development team and the Vector community.
This release follows our legendary tradition of stability (inherited from SlackWare-12), blazing speed on even modest hardware and simplicity of design and function.

This release features fully working browser plugins including Flash, java, mp3, real media, Windows media, pdf and Quick time. Additional features include: 7.3, Linux kernel, fully customized Xfce 4.4.2, Fluxbox, Jwm, SeaMonkey Internet Suite 1.1.7, Firefox and Opera 9.5.0 beta1 (so you'll be sure to have your favorite browser!). Abiword and Gnumeric for your office tasks.

We include our own suite of GUI configuration and support tools such as Vasm, Vwifi and Gslapt. There is a full set of the latest wireless drivers and configuration tools, support for read and write to ntfs via fuse and ntfs-3g.

We have games lots of games. Printers, scanners and cameras are supported as well. Popular programs like Amarok, OpenOffice, kde-3.5.8 and many others are available in our repository which currently boasts well over a thousand of the most popular linux applications and support software.

Other news with this release is VLpackager, an easy way to package source code into usable binary packages and at long last a GUI control center dubbed VasmCC. We also have a modified version of cruxports for those wishing to easily build software that may not have made it to the repository yet.

For who don't know Vector Linux, it is a small, fast, Intel based Linux operating system for PC style computers. 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 lightening 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.

The power user 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.

Btw, you can download the ISO of this final release at here.
