PCLOS 2007.1 Soon, Followed by PCLOS 2008

Filed under
PCLOS

Good news to Linux Desktop Users! Tex and Ripper Gang will be offer PCLinuxOS 2007.1 soon followed by PCLinuxOS 2008. Now no more downloading of more than 400MB software after installing PCLinuxOS 2007.

PCLinuxOS 2007.1 will sport 2.6.24 kernel and latest stable packages from the repository. This release will have more drivers for the latest notebooks and desktops. The name "2007.1" does not seem fitting in the year "2008," but it is good as an update to 2007 release, and there will be totally new 2008 version with much makeover and features.

ah, that'll be the two years discounting pclos 2007 or are some of us using a different calendar? I'm sure it is only 2008 now..... Seems you are on the dukenukem standard, hmmm?
Pclos 2007 was a big leap forward from .93a and the standard involved was worth the wait.
Using minime just now and it is different from the standard 2007. I'm prepared to wait.

The 9 best distros for KDE’s Plasma desktop

While it's possible to install 'KDE' software and Plasma desktop on most Linux based distributions, I have picked the distros which offer Plasma as their default desktop environment. These 'KDE-based' distros offer a better Plasma experience compared to those where you can 'also' install KDE. At some point in time I have used each of these distros as my primary OS except for Mageia and Open Mandriva, which I tried but never used due to uncertainty around their future. Read more

Snag the Android Auto compatible Pioneer AVH-4100NEX for just $570 from Amazon

While the unit carries an MSRP of $700, Amazon's deal marks it down from its previous list price of $849.99. While it's still a tad expensive, the discount makes it a bit easier to get some Android Auto into your car. In case you've somehow managed to avoid any mention of Android Auto up until now, it allows you to connect any Android device running on Android 5.0 Lollipop with the relatively new Android Auto app in order to use it to control everything from navigation to music and phone calls.
