PCLinuxOS appeals to me only because of its looks. Whether it probes and
detects hardware successfully, I am yet to find out. Mandriva 2006 was
excellent in that respect. Let's not forget that PCLinuxOS is KDE-based and,
judging by a KDE 4 mockup:


Not to mention Plasma, XGL and all the other fun stuff, this may a good path
way forward, eye-candy-wise, if not usability-wise as well. The KDE team is
working with professionals to improve the user experience.

As to some good news, published early this morning:
