PCLinuxOS Updated - Almost Overlooked

Filed under
PCLOS

Somehow, I had managed to overlook the release of a new base image for PCLinuxOS. It might have been the recent very bad news for the developers and contributors, or it might have been my own inattentiveness. But whatever the reason, I don't recall seeing anything about it either on the PCLinuxOS web page or on Distrowatch. So, I have done some catching up this weekend.

FIrst, the KDE or LXDE versions can be downloaded from the PCLinuxOS mirrors. The ISO images are compatible with the unetbootin utility, so they can easily be converted to LiveUSB sticks. From that point, installation is smooth and easy.

Over the weekend I have installed this new release on everything around here, from my new Samsung P580 laptop (on my desk) to my trusty HP 2133 Mini-Note. Everything works just fine. Here are a few notes:
