[News] PCLinuxOS 2009.1 is FANTASTIC, Good Reviews All Around

Hash: SHA1

PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Bounces Back with a Bang!

,----[ Quote ]
| First I installed it on my spare Compaq notebook that has an aging Celeron M 
| processor. And I find it quite snappy. Right from switching on the button to 
| full-blown KDE took 1min 20sec only. And I dare say on a Core2Duo Pentium or 
| Centrino it will dwarf many other desktop-wannabes.   
| Long live PCLinuxOS!


Blue Hot PCLinuxOS 2009 Walkthrough and First Impressions

,----[ Quote ]
| Based on the brief but thorough period of using PCLinuxOS 2009, I can 
| honestly say that it’s another outstanding release for the PCLOS team. It is 
| an all-around user-friendly no-nonsense desktop distro that I can highly 
| recommend to ordinary users as well as power users because it “just works”. I 
| think it truly deserves to be considered as one of the best Linux distro at 
| the moment.     


The Ill-Fated PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Experiment

,----[ Quote ]
| I would happily recommend PCLinuxOS 2009.1 to new and old Linux users alike. 
| PCLOS has a large repository of great (RPM) packages, a thriving, friendly 
| community and a development team who really know how to put together a top 
| class product, even if they do take their time about it.   
| The first time you launch Firefox in 2009.1, you're taken to a customised 
| PCLinuxOS page which has a title in the window border which says: "PCLinuxOS 
| 2009.1 - The distro-hopper-stopper".  
| Cocky? I don't think so. PCLOS 2009.1 really is that good.


PCLinuxOS: Radically simple and a bit boring for geeks

,----[ Quote ]
| Tex and the Ripper gang have proved once more, that those who claimed "You 
| need at least a master degree in computer science to maintain a Linux system" 
| are rather redicoulous. PCLinuxOS proves that those chaps are simply lying 
| trought their teeth. If you are actually looking for a no brainer OS (no pun 
| intendet), kiss Microsoft Windows goodby and get your copy of PCLinuxOS.    


HackMy...phase II

,----[ Quote ]
| For those of you who don't know, Hackmy... forums started out as a "advanced" 
| forum for users of PCLinuxOS. 
| HackMy has moved to a new host and has a whole new look and goal though.
| Hackmy is now open to users of Linux, ANY distro.


First Look: PCLinuxOS 2009.1 GNOME

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, PCLinuxOS 2009.1 GNOME will certainly please its thirsty 
| community. It looks great, it's stable enough to be used on a daily basis, 
| and it has a lot of useful applications. Get over the minor issues and you'll 
| be in for an enjoyable experience.   


Quick look around PCLinuxOS 2009.1

,----[ Quote ]
| I was planning to install this on the old test-pc, but PCLinuxOS is very 
| impressive. I think I’ll use it to replace the Windows 7 beta that’s on my 
| main system.  


Goodbye, BetaVista7 (not even out yet). GNU/Linux is better.


PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| As I said at the beginning, there's a good reason why PCLinuxOS has such a
| loyal following. It's good. It works. It includes lots of excellent packages.
| If you give it a try, you are likely to really 
| be pleased - I am. 


Five-O for PCLinuxOS

,----[ Quote ]
| After rebooting to PCLinuxOS, I mentioned to them about the upcoming 2009
| release. And one of the guys was dumbfounded, querying if there'll be
| something better? I didn't answer but instead asked Marvin what he was using
| his laptop for, and explained to him that I wanted to install the programs he
| needed to get the most from his machine. Well, it was pretty much basic so
| within the hour (I have a local PCLinuxOS repository), I got much of what he
| needed; his system updated and loaded. Marvin was a bit baffled how he got
| GIMP, the latest Firefox, OpenOffice.org, digiKam, amarok, and a host of
| other goodies. Three points.


PCLOS 2009 On the Wing

,----[ Quote ]
| As I write here I’m downloading the beta 3 of PCLinuxOS 2009, which will be
| my first go at the Ripper gang’s newest version since 2007. Based on that
| experience, my expectations are high. I guess that’s what happens when you
| produce quality stuff, Texstar: people start anticipating better and better.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
