PclinuxOS, radically simple: Plug ‘n Play

,----[ Quote ]
| The article I am writing is about PCLinuxOS, but probably is not very
| different for other Linux distributions. A few weeks ago I installed
| PCLinuxOS for the first time and was impressed by the ease of stabilizing my
| internet connection and the speed of installation. Since that first day
| PCLinuxOS managed to surprise me several other times.


Seduced by Sidux

| Sidux may have successfully seduced me, but I have to wait and try the
| Distribution Release so that I can properly and fully express my desire for
| this fine distro.

Sidux 2007-02 - A Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Simply put, Sidux 2007-02 was a pleasure to use. The live CD
| worked beautifully, as did the installer. The desktop is very
| dark, but this is nice to see after using so many “light” distributions.

Sidux: A live CD for Debian unstable

| It's a rare distribution that impresses me before I've even tried it,

| next release was available for download.

| Sidux ships with a 2.6.20 kernel, Xorg 7.1.1, gcc 4.1.2, and KDE
| 3.5.5. Iceweasel appears to be the default browser and
| OpenOffice.org is only at version 2.0.4. Besides what appears to
| be most of the KDE apps, other apps include The Gimp, Amarok,
| K3B, Kaffine, Scribus, XFMedia player, and Inkscape. There are a
| few system configuration tools, but not a lot. Ksensors is
| available through apt-get.

Sidux vs. Mint: Can You Live the Pure Open Source Life?

,----[ Quote ]
| There are valid and compelling reasons why one might want to use only
| Open Source Software. Avoids any patent or IP legal issues, better
| security, and encourages innovation are just a few. However, on the
| other side of the argument there are justifiable reasons for the
| inclusion of multimedia codecs, proprietary drivers, and closed
| software in modern Linux distributions. Neither side is wrong.


My PCLinuxOS “WOW” moment

| Conclusions: In the end I must admit that there are several advantages for
| users that plan to change from Windows to Linux, like the ease of
| installation of restricted drivers and codecs. *


Another Day Another Distro – Part 4 – PCLinuxOS 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| So after my positive experience of Mandriva 2008 it was time to reluctantly
| pack my bags and move on. My destination this time was PCLinuxOS 2007 which
| is not a distribution I'd tried before. *


PCLinuxOS: Linux Distribution

,----[ Quote ]
| One notable difference from Mandriva is the program used to install
| extra software. We found this much easier to use and includes useful
| software such as graphics drivers.
| Unlike some other distributions, PCLinuxOS can play back
| proprietary multimedia files (including wma, mp3, mpg, rm,
| mov) without having to install extra software. DVD playback
| software is not included but can be installed with the
| standard installation tool.


Review: PcLinuxOS 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| While PcLinuxOS does still have a bit of growing to do, out of all the
| linux distributions out there, I'd easily rate this one as the best in
| every way because of all that it does, how easy it is to use, how ready
| it is to use out of the box, and most especially in the area of
| appeasing both camps, the new user and the experienced user.


PClinuxOS 2007.0 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I am a Kubuntu user since version 6.06. However, that hasn't made
| me blindly consider (k)ubuntu to be the best linux distro; I am
| always open to newcomers. In recent days, PClinuxOS 2007.0 was
| released, and quickly hit the top of of the distrowatch charts.
| I decided to download it and give this relatively new distribution
| a text run on my Acer Aspire 5050 laptop, nicknamed the geebee.
