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?

Today we’re taking a look at PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniMe, the latest and greatest from the PCLinuxOS guys, just minimalised so you only get what you need and you add what you want on top of it. 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.
