PCLinuxOS 2010.12 Gnome - Rushed out too early

Filed under
PCLOS

As I've written on a few occasions in the past, PCLinuxOS is probably the best small distro around. It shows what can be done by a small development team, with limited resources. Not a simple deal, especially when you go against big companies with lots of money. Still, it never quite managed to break through into the big league. There was always a bit of homebrew that would not make it reach the critical mass of users.

Over the years, PCLinuxOS showed a steady improvement, including hardware, the look and feel, the choice of programs, and more. Gnome always took a backbench compared to the mainstream KDE version, but it was a stellar work of art in the 2009 release. Well, it's time to see what the Gnome edition offers, once more, almost two years later. Tested and deployed on a 32-bit T60p machine with 2GB RAM and an ATI card.

PCLinuxOS

Yes! PCLinuxOS is terrible, just terrible. Please do not download or install it. We already have more than our share of crazies.

Thanks!

Another fine drop out from the Dale Carnegie Academy.

Way to take a fair review with some constructive criticism and snark it up.
