Thanks! I'll take the plunge then! :)

It was episode 76 of SMLR: Direct link:

General Support / Potentially new user needs some pre-install advice.

I am currently running Linux Mint 14 and LMDE on a few laptops in a home network. These days I run Linux mostly for work and do not have a lot of time to spend on making things work on my Linux installs. I heard a review of VSIDO on "Sunday Morning Linux Review" and it sounds like the perfect distro for me (I have been through a lot of them!). That is if I can get it up and running without too much trouble. I'm running a relatively new i5 powered Lenovo L520 laptop with Intel graphics and wireless.  I need these things to work without too much problems:

1. Wireless
2. VPN with OpenVPN (I have it set up in Network Manager in Mint and it works well).
3. Skype
4. Google Chrome.
5. Shotwell.
6 HP printer support with HPLIP installed using the HP installer.

I have searched these forums a bit, but it would be good with some reassurance I can be online with the above working within a couple of hours after install on my relatively new hardware.

Introductions / So here I am....I hope.

I've been on Linux since 1998. My first install was Debian on a laptop. It took two weeks to get online. Today I'm a Linux user and need my Linux laptop to work at all times since my job requires it. I really like the concept of Vsido, but am afraid I am going to spend too much time getting all I need to work out of the box to really work. We will see! :)
