PCLOS TinyMe - Nothing Tiny With This Little Fella

Filed under

I was looking around for a new distro to run my server at home, and decided on PCLinux Business Edition, which then had a link in the community to another called TinyMe. I was curious as to what this might offer, being that I am a very big PCLOS fan. So let's try this little bug out and see if it can fly with the big dogs...


One quickly notices the tieins to the parent distro for this, PCLinuxOS, which ironically is also a child of Mandriva. I guess this makes TinyME and grandchild distro? It eventually runs a live CD installer, but like the others, there are some necessary steps in between. The odd thing is that you need to do these things to run the Live CD, but they don't really relate to the actual installation.

So the first screen you get is the login with a pretty background of water on a window. I like the look and feel, and of course if you have read any of my reviews you know I love Blue anything in the themes. The login for all PCLOS systems is username/password of guest/guest and root/root.
