 Vidalinux 1.1 Review

Introduction
Vidalinux is a Gentoo based desktop OS from our friends in Puerto Rico In this article, I will review Vidalinux 1.1 with a special comparison to Gentoo. Vidalinux isn't all that old: version 1.0 was released in August 2004. This original release was followed up by 1.1 late 2004 (Christmas Day actually). I spoke with Vidalinux developers and they were more than happy to provide me with a copy of the Premium Edition.

Installation
The installation is a pretty standard fare. The Vidalinux installer uses the Anaconda technology (which is used by Fedora, Linare, and other installers). This means if you can install a distribution like Fedora you should have no problems installing Vidalinux. Looking at the screenshots should give you a pretty good idea. The only odd thing is that there are no categories listed in the package selection phase of the installation. This is a fairly minor thing for me as I chose to install all packages.
