Personally I had problems with crashbang. Theming on the taskbar not working, freezing out of no where, my network not working anymore (permanently) and having no clue how to get it back (it still works on my other linux partition). I don't think it is quite ready for normal use.
Also I have a question about Vector, I liked slackware but stopped using it because it had no built in networked packaging system and slapt-get/gslapt's dependency and upgrade detection was VERY VERY VERY messy and frustrating. It would sometimes downgrade packages instead of upgrade if I was using more than one repository and uninstall things still needed for other apps just because another app didn't need it anymore. It also was not very good at picking up dependencies. Have these things been fixed in Vector?
