PCLinuxOS 2007: It really is as good as the Hype!

Filed under
PCLOS

Oh my. I may have found myself a new favorite distro.

I nearly overlooked this one because of my difficulties with PCLOS Minime 2008 on the flashdrive. I will say one thing about Minime: it does work and works well. I do like the look and feel of it and if I could get the package manager to work, I would be all over it.

I downloaded and burned the live CD of the 2007 version and must say that I really like it. The latest PCLinux 2007 is the Gnome version, but the default is the KDE version. If you don’t understand what I just wrote, don’t sweat it. I have always preferred the KDE but that’s just me.

Have they respun their ISO yet, or do you still need to download something like 9 bazillion megs worth of patches after a fresh install? (not as Jerry Seinfeld says: "there's anything wrong with that").

re: re: PCLOS 2007

No, they are still working on it as far as I can tell from posts and stuff. They put out a mini 2008, but you'd still need to download quite a bit of stuff to make it a full desktop (as most people think of a full desktop). I understand they are working on rolling kde 3.5.9 among other things and will release when ready. Some estimations have it as far off as May.
