PCLinuxOS improving its community

Filed under
PCLOS

We have loads of websites, reviews and blogs about how "radically simple" PCLinuxOS is.
People that try it almost always like it ( there are exceptions though) and like it to the extent that they have made it Number One Distribution on Distrowatch.

As PCLOS has displaced Ubuntu, so many people try it and then rate it in comparison to Ubuntu.

I have seen numerous examples of such comparison and in almost all PCLOS wins easily.
However, there are three major problems with PCLOS:

2. A fresh install would mean more than 500 MB of updates. Ubuntu has a 6 month release schedule, for PCLOS it is unknown. PCLOS has a rolling release system, so people who have installed 2007 simply need to do an upgrade through Synaptic and they will have the latest PCLOS. Any new release would simply be a snapshot of the existing stable software in PCLOS 2007 repository. That apart Texstar is planning to make a release some time soon.

3. Community. Now this is one area where Ubuntu scores heavily over PCLOS. Agreed Ubuntu has got the greatest community amongst all Linux Distributions ( gentoo users may contest this ), however, PCLOS is improving on its community and improving very rapidly.

How to: Install Google Chrome web browser on Ubuntu Linux (and uninstall Firefox)

Ubuntu comes with a lot of quality software pre-installed. Unfortunately, the default web browser, Mozilla Firefox, has been on the decline -- it is slow and clunky. On Linux, Google Chrome is now the top web browser, and it is the best way to experience Adobe Flash content too (if you still need it). Installing Google Chrome on the Linux-based operating system is not totally straightforward. This is unfortunate, as the search-giant's web browser is an important part of having an overall quality experience on Ubuntu. Don't worry, however, as we will help you to both install the wonderful Google Chrome and uninstall the disappointing Mozilla Firefox. Read more
