candyfoss.com: One of the things Carl and I toyed with when discussing CandyFOSS is doing dual-reviews — where we both review the distribution at the same time. Today we’re taking a look at PCLinuxOS 2008 MiniMe, the latest and greatest from the PCLinuxOS guys, just minimalised so you only get what you need and you add what you want on top of it.
pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I was looking for PCLinuxOS flavours with latest xorg and kernel. PCLinuxOS official version is yet to be released. So I thought why not try its gnome remaster. It's the same pclinuxos with gnome desktop. And here is the result of what I got.
PCLinuxOS Magazine, February 2008 (Issue 18) is available to download. Some highlights include: How to setup autofs to mount samba shares, A beginners howto on RealBasic, and Nvidia dual head setup.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I wanted to upgrade Ubuntu to 7.10, to install Sabayon Linux and to install PCLinuxOS. Yes, this was going to be a triple boot laptop.
gresak.com: This past weekend, I used one of our old desktop computers to install a copy of PCLinuxOS 2007. I took this updated system over to my parents house for them to try out as an alternative to their aging Windows XP system.

lazytechguy.com: Well to really have fun, we need loads of other applications and some tweaks. Lets check what Minime offers and then we will go ahead and apply the required tweaks.
junauza.blogspot: MiniMe as the name implies, is a stripped-down version of PCLinuxOS. It serves as a foretaste of what has yet to come since the development of PCLinuxOS 2008 is still underway. Nevertheless, MiniMe is pretty much functional and can be installed and used as a complete desktop operating system.
tonyrs-blog.blogspot: I really like OpenSUSE Linux, but the best distro is PCLinuxOS. If there was ever an OS that could help me 'throw Windows out the window,' this is it. Ive tried using Mac as an alternative to Windows, but I guess it just wasn't for me.
ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I am not someone who believes that a Linux distributions sells itself, that technological achievement is enough to push it to the desktop of end users. As long as the educational systems keep on teaching Windows-based skills, there will be a lot of users who need some hand holding, some guidance, some instruction. What does PCLinuxOS have to offer in this regard?
