Review: PcLinuxOS 2008 "MiniMe"

,----[ Quote ]
| It's been nearly ten months since we last reviewed a PcLinuxOS release. This
| time around we have a brand new flavor to look at. The venerable "MiniMe"
| 2008 release. What's different about this version over the previous 2007
| version? Let's have a look and find out..

Little and Littler

| Both TinyMe and MiniMe are nice looking distros (see the default desktop
| screenshots above), though given the choice I'd lose TinyMe's Conky system
| monitors which come installed by default – personally I prefer a cleaner,
| less cluttered desktop, so MiniMe wins hands-down.



PCLOS TinyMe - Nothing Tiny With This Little Fella

| I am honestly pleased to give this package a 4 Pennie review. I have always
| shy'd away from the microdistro, affraid of wasting my time putting a system
| in place that really wouldn't meet my needs. I generally look at other
| distros, focusing on Enlightenment or XFCE so I am very pleased to know there
| is a openbox distro out there that runs on the tiniest of machines with
| enough horse power to even become a server if it wanted too. The power of
| PCLOS, combined with a package manager of Synaptic and a cute little control
| center to allow even the newest of the newbies a system they can manage makes
| this one hell of a package. * * * *

| TinyME Test 6 was announced today on Distrowatch.Com and we thought we would
| take a quick look at it. This little distro packs a big punch and we enjoyed
| the ride. Take a short look at our Flash Video of TinyME Linux based on the
| user friendly PCLinuxOS. *

TinyMe Test 5 released!

| The changes for test 5 are almost too numerous to mention. This will
| hopefully be our last test release before TinyMe Final.

TinyMe - The little distro that could

| This derivative version of PCLOS really is a tiny little gem that's slowly,
| but surely growing into a much bigger diamond. *I look forward to the
| eventual final release of this distribution in the near future. *

Mini Review of a Tiny PCLOS

,----[ Quote ]
| TinyMe is a scaled down version of PCLinuxOS 2007. The latest version
| is delivered as a 177 MB liveCD and features the Lightweight X11
| Desktop Enviroment, Synaptic, and the PCLinuxOS Control Center. It
| comes with a few applications, so it could be a really light version
| of PCLOS for older computers or a foundation on which to build your
| own system as you choose.
