PCLinuxOS 2010 beta - fantastic!

| Setting up my HP wireless printer/scanner 
| was also painless, that took me days of 
| bashing my head against the keyboard 
| fighting with the hplip drivers in 11.2, 
| where it wouldn't work if you selected the 
| printer the software discovered, you had to 
| enter the IP manually. Plus PCLOS set the 
| scanner part up automatically, that has to 
| be done seperately in 11.2.


HP Elite 7000 Microtower review

,----[ Quote ]
| However, we still tested the stock version 
| and came away impressed. For the vast 
| majority of computing tasks â using Evolution 
| to check your POP mail, burning a DVD disc 
| using LightScribe (included with this SLED 
| build) and even playing games or watching 
| movies â the Elite 7000 is up to the task. 
| Where we noticed a performance degradation is 
| when we compared Linux-to-Linux between this 
| system and a home-built PC that uses an SSD 
| drive, an Nvidia Quadro CX graphics card and 
| has 6GB of RAM. There was no comparison, of 
| course â the home-built system was snappier 
| even for popping up Firefox, copying files 
| and running simulations with a program like 
| Autodesk Revit Architecture (which normally 
| prefers a workstation PC).



PCLinuxOS 2010 mini review

| 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

,----[ Quote ]
| 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
| other big distros.
