oldfool.org: I started using the PCLinuxOS Linux distribution around 5 years ago. One day in a moment of disgust with Microsoft XP I downloaded a copy of PCLOS .92 and ran it on my PC.
linuxbsdos.com: PCLinuxOS is a Linux distribution based on Mandriva Linux. The most recent update, and the first since the last update in 2007, was released last week.
sloppyganger.blogspot: My goal was to check on what was new in this distro but not necessarily to fully replace my installation of Ubuntu 8.10. After about 10 minutes in 2009.1, I could not double click the "Install" icon on the desktop fast enough.
dedoimedo.com: PCLinuxOS is dubbed the "distro hopper-stopper" by its fans. Not without a good reason, I must say, because PCLinuxOS aims and succeeds at being radically simple [sic], friendly to new users as well as Linux geeks, easy to configure and manage, and packaging all you might need from your computer.
lockergnome.com/blade: As I mentioned last week, I was going to give Linux another try to see what some of the latest new distributions have to offer.
raiden.net: In 2007 as one of our first Linux distro reviews, we took a peak at PcLinuxOS 2007 (aka PCLOS) and found it at the time to be a stellar product for it's time, stable, clean, easy to use and enjoyable. Will 2009 still retain it's former glory, or has the new version ended up as a fizzling dud?
wamukota.blogspot: As one might expect from PCLinuxOS, the LiveCD allows an easy HD install and within a matter of minutes, you have PCLinux2009.1 running.
reddevil62-techhead.blogspot: PCLinuxOS 2009.1 was running beautifully. The installation from the live CD had retained the settings and I had completed all my usual post-install multimedia checks. So why, by all that's holy, did I think that switching on Compiz's 3D effects might be A Good Thing To Try?
