PCLinuxOS 2010 mini review

,----[ Quote ]
| If you are looking for a Linux distro 
| specialized for the common everyday desktop 
| computer then PCLOS is the number one 
| choice. Like the much advertised MacOSX, 
| PCLOS is ready to do every fun stuff, like 
| watch online videos, download files using 
| torrents, do some photo editing make DVD 
| slideshows etc., right after install. PCLOS 
| 2010 is the first release featuring KDE 4 as 
| default desktop. Despite using KDE 4, the 
| PCLOS architects have managed to maintain 
| the original and unique style of this great 
| distro. Though KDE4 series is radically 
| different from KDE 3, an average Joe user 
| who installs PCLOS 2010 wouldn't be able to 
| tell the difference. I think this would 
| greatly help in KDE 4 adoption among more 
| and more people. I am looking forward for 
| the final release to install on my ASUS Nova 
| lite mini desktop at home which is currently 
| running PCLOS 2009.


PCLinuxOS 2010 Beta 1

| I have been looking at PCLinuxOS 2010 Beta 1 
| because I like the rolling release concept 
| and PCLinuxOS does keep things rolling. I 
| have the beta installed on a system with an 
| NVidea GeForce 220 GT and an HP HDMI 25" 
| wide screen flat panel display, this 
| combination is very problematic for most 
| distribution but has no issues of any kind 
| in the beta. Plymouth is installed by 
| default, it does not currently work from the 
| Live CD but works fine in the installed 
| system. Plymouth will work on the Live CD 
| for the final release and this was presented 
| as a known issue. The Plymouth issue is 
| minor and it gave me the opportunity to see 
| that there were no errors at start up.

| Once upon a time, PCLinuxOS was the biggest
| desktop distro. It came from nowhere
| straight to the top, beating Ubuntu and
