PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniMe - Dual Review

Filed under
PCLOS

One of the things Carl and I toyed with when discussing CandyFOSS is doing dual-reviews — where we both review the distribution at the same time. Cool, right?

The download consists of a pleasing sub-300meg ISO file, with tools and tutorials around to help you put it on a 512meg USB flash drive (something that can’t be said for full 700meg CD images).

The boot sequence is very familiar to 2007. You’re presented with a grub screen offering the live environment, various safe modes, memory tests, media checks, a RAM mode (for ultra-fast operation) and a plain console.
