Slackware : mature
Vector : not mature

The reviwer cites Slackware as being unfriendly but this is repeating old FUD from _years_ ago.

These Slackware is no harder than any other distro to install. It is pleasantly simple & quite zippy. Try it you'll see.

I tried Vector & found it not as zippy as claimed & everything about it was less mature.
The installer is not as good as slack. Once installed the OS needed more fiddling than Slackware. etc

So I question this distro's reason to exist.
