You don't like compiling from source so you're going for a Slackware
based system? To be honest you'd probably be best just going for
Slackware, as far as I can tell Vector is just Slackware with a gui
install (contrary to popular belief Slackware's install is pretty good)
and some kind of extra config abstraction stuff. Go for Slackware, you
know you want too. </slackware zealotry>

If you can read this you've gone too far.
