PCLinuxOS 2014.07 Arrives with Linux Kernel 3.15.4 and KDE 4.12.3 – Gallery

Filed under
PCLOS

PCLinuxOS comes with many flavors, but the default is actually KDE. The developers also make a few other versions, like KDE MiniMe, LXDE, or FullMonty, but this is the main one downloaded by most users.

The distribution actually follows a rolling release model, which means that new major features and other changes are introduced regularly through the update channel. Every month, the download ISOs are regenerated with the new update, but if you already have the operating system installed you only have to update it regularly.

Hands-on with PCLinuxOS 2014.05 KDE and LXDE: The Linux with something for everyone

Filed under
PCLOS
Reviews

The last time I wrote about PCLinuxOS I was a bit critical about its Linux kernel version being quite a bit behind most of the other mainstream Linux distributions, so I was pleased to see that they have really caught up with this release. It has kernel 3.12.18, KDE 4.12.3, X.org X server 1.12.4, LibreOffice 4.2.4.2 and Firefox 29.0.1. Those are all quite good, and that Firefox release is really "hot off the press".

Filed under
PCLOS

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.

Multiboot Laptop Update

Reviews

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.
