PCLinuxOS 2010 beta - fantastic!

Filed under
PCLOS

I recently put a brand new desktop system together in order to get better performance with some of the FPS games I like to play. Of course the first thing I did was install openSUSE 11.2. After installing and re-installing many different versions of openSUSE, I just decided to accept the fact that my machine was too new.

Then yesterday I stumbled into distrowatch.com and saw that PCLinuxOS had just released a new beta version of their 2010 distro. It sounded interesting, and I really liked their 2008 mini-me distro at the time, but came to openSUSE instead, mainly because PCLOS always had an older kernel and openSUSE just looked more professional.

I booted their liveCD on my desktop and was completely blown away with how it functioned. EVERYTHING worked out-of-the-box!

I had 4 videos playing on the desktop, while also playing an mp3 file with amarok2, konversation sounds didn't cut the sound out, and the Nvidia driver was already installed and working. I clicked on the "enable 3d effects" button for a laugh, and low-and-behold it worked. All this on the LiveCD!

Rest here




Stumbling

All these people stumbling into PCLinuxOS needs to quit drinking!
