| of Ubuntu 10.04.

| The "psb" Poulsbo driver from Intel was broken

PCLinuxOS 2010 Review

| As you probably expect at this point, I
| absolutely recommend PCLinuxOS 2010. I have
| been using it for only a couple days, but I
| have the feeling that it is the best Linux
| release I have tested in years.
| PCLinuxOS 2010 is excellent for any kind of
| user, but probably most recommended for new
| comers. It brings down the need for CLI
| typing to almost zero. In my case, I
| actually have only opened Konsole because I
| like it, not because there was no other
| choice.


Linux Distro Review: PCLinuxOS 2010

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, the PCLinuxOS 2010 KDE and Gnome
| versions are a very good choice, but I would
| not call them 'radically simple'. It's bloated
| with too many programs I will never use. New
| users should definitely avoid the KDE version
| and opt first for Gnome.
| My thanks go to PCLinuxOS for allowing us all
| the opportunity to make our own decision about
| their software. I am thankful to the Linux
| community at large for supplying such a wealth
| of distributions.


PCLinuxOS 2010 Review


PCLinuxOS 2010 Edition arrives in six variants

,----[ Quote ]
| One of the major changes for this release
| is the availability of six PCLinuxOS 2010
| variants, each with a different desktop
| environment. In addition to the project's
| standard KDE release with version 4.4.2 of
| the KDE desktop, users can choose a GNOME
| 2.30.0 desktop, the GNOME Zen Mini desktop,
| LXDE, XFCE or the Enlightenment E-17
| desktop.

| I was very excited about this release of
| PCLOS and have been waiting for it to hit
| for a while now.  PCLinuxOS (PCLOS for
| short) was my second Linux distro I ever
| used and I really liked it.  The only
| reason I moved on from it was the fact that
| I never really got used to the KDE desktop,
| finding it a bit too remniscent of Windoze
| for my liking.  However, I was willing to
| overlook that detail and give this version
| another whirl.  So here we go.

| PCLinuxOS should definitely be at the top of
| anybodyâs desktop distro list. Thereâs a version
| of it for pretty much everybody, from desktop
| eye-candy addicts to extreme minimalists that
| want total control over what applications go on
| their system. It provides a great alternative to
| Ubuntu, Fedora and some of the other prominent
| desktop distros.


PCLinuxOS 2010 Edition is now available for download.
