adventures in linux: In a post I made a while back, the Linux distro PCLinuxOS showed up in the comments. When I stuck my foot into it in a reply, the creator of the distro, Texstar jumped in to set me straight. My mistake was to say the PCLinuxOS was now based on Debian. Another poster pointed out I needed to do my research better. Too true. I had two data points.
After consistently rising in the DistroWatch H.P.D. rankings for months, PCLinuxOS finally managed to bump Ubuntu from the top of the list. Despite all, PCLinuxOS seems to attract a constantly increasing number of clicks.
