PCLinuxOS 2010 - Familiar taste of radical simplicity

,----[ Quote ]
| I find PCLinuxOS to be the big small
| distro. While it has a modest development
| team, the final product has always felt
| quite solid and polished, beyond the normal
| expectations of limited resources. What
| more, the distribution managed a fine
| balance between speed, usability,
| familiarity, and luring in new users, not
| an easy task.
| [...]
| By all standards and benchmarks, PCLinuxOS
| is a great success. It's a beautiful,
| polished, simple, easy to use distribution,
| with great performance and stability,
| especially on older machines, a well
| balanced array of programs, and no big
| problems at all. Subtle yet important
| improvements from previous versions are
| evident, with fewer wizard windows bugging
| you on your way into the live session or
| during the installation. Let's not forget
| old problems, which were solved in this
| release, a critical sign of progress.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
