PCLinuxOS KDE 2012.2: Pretty and solid distro

Filed under
PCLOS

I have heard a lot of good things of PCLinuxOS and yesterday, finally I decided to try it out. I downloaded the stable version 2012.2 (KDE) from the PCLinux FTP. The ISO is about 690 MB and I booted it up in my VirtualBox. The initial liveCD boot was easy, it asked a couple of questions on my keyboard and location and finally landed on the desktop.

The desktop looks typical KDE and for serious stuff. One good thing is in the first login itself, the guest and root passwords are mentioned. For a lot of distros, many-a-times I have to search on net to get the default root password. The developers have surely thought of the first time users.

Rest here
