The operating system comes with six different desktops, and each of them is dedicated to one kind of activity: Internet, Office, Games, Multimedia, Graphics, and System. Each desktop features a number of applications that are just right for that particular activity, which might seem odd at first, but at least this is something different from what the users are getting from other distros.
PCLinuxOS MATE 2014.04, a free Linux and MATE-based operating system for desktops or laptops, has been released and is now available for download.
PCLinuxOS LXDE 2014.04, a free and easy-to-use Linux-based operating system for desktops or laptops based on LXDE, is now available for download.
The developers of PCLinuxOS have released a new version of the famous Linux distribution, featuring LXDE, one of the lightest desktop environments available right now. Even if the system is perfectly capable of running on modern computers, this particular version of PCLinuxOS is aimed at low-end hardware.
When I bought the ZaReason Strata Laptop, I asked them to pre-load Mageia 4 to it. However, I knew that I was going to add more distros to the hard drive as soon as I can, to make it feel like the pentaboot HP Pavilion that died on me.
To begin, I wiped the original install and re-installed Mageia. Then, I tried to put PCLinuxOS into the hard drive, but the distro had problems with the display. As I could not achieve a decent display, I decided to do some research and try with PCLinuxOS later.

Getting Mageia 4 on the laptop was no big deal. In fact, I used the 64 bit version of the OS and everything worked, even the Japanese IME with iBus.
Then I tried to get PCLinuxOS and, unfortunately, had problems with the display. I need to see if I can get to correct the problem later.
The other OS that I installed to the Strata was OpenMandriva 2013. The only problem was the lack of Wifi connectivity... It was solved easily adding the appropriate packages.
Mandriva and its derivatives/relatives continue to produce good desktop distributions which are RPM-based

This quarterly release from PCLinuxOS delivers the latest from KDE, LXDE, and MATE. Or you can try the famous PCLinuxOS Full Monty ISO which includes most/or all of the desktops listed above. I am slightly behind on my KDE updates so I will be reviewing PCLinuxOS 2013.12 KDE. For those that are wondering, this distribution is available in 32 or 64 bit architecture.
For those who think that Mandrake/Mandriva are gone and are merely part of history it should be important to recognise forks and derivatives, including OpenMandriva. One day it might be a Mandriva derivative — not a RHEL or Debian derivative — that becomes the most widely used GNU/Linux distribution (or operating system). ChromeOS and SteamOS, for instance, are based on rather different systems of GNU/Linux.

Inspiring words from a Citrix open source exec, using GitHub for beehive building, and other interesting newsSubmitted by Rianne Schestowitz on Sun, 17/11/2013 - 3:24pm Filed under
"One of the most transformative platforms for innovation is open source. The solution to helping solve problems in the world not just technology problems but social and political problems can and should benefit from open source." That comes from Mark Hinkle, senior director of open source solutions at Citrix, in his "Open Source: A Platform for Innovation" post on Wired.com. Hinkle is no stranger to inspiring the open source masses. Earlier this year he wooed OSCON attendees with a keynote, saying: "Open source has won, let's look to the future." Read his Wired.com column for a spoonful of open source inspiration.
If you prefer the do-it-your way experience, opt for the KDE MiniMe version. You will get a basic KDE desktop to configure your way. This version is intended for advanced users who know how to fine-tune their system. It is a much smaller ISO file that lacks printer drivers. You add what drivers you need as well as whatever other elements you want beyond the bare-bones KDE installation.

ostatic.com: There have been quite a few announcements to come out of the Linux world recently. Ubuntu and Mageia got a developmental release while openSUSE and Arch announced their newest versions. The PCLinuxOS team released their "KDE FullMonty" update and a new Slackware derivative popped up on the scene.
mylinuxexplore.blogspot: I have used Ubuntu mostly in last 2 year or so and I could never successfully update Ubuntu - I had to do fresh install every time! PCLinuxOS is actually the first Linux OS which I could upgrade without breaking anything.

fossforce.com: The bull doesn’t seem to be part of PCLinuxOS anymore, as it was in 2010 when I first started using it. The distro changes its look with each new release and nowdays the logo is something akin to a CPU usage graph. Other than that, I can’t tell you a thing about the greatest and latest version of PCLOS.
karimlalani.blogspot: We have 5 computers in our household. My mom and my wife use Kubuntu on their computers, while my dad and I have ArchLinux/KDE. I figured it was time to give another more beginner friendly Linux distribution a try.
