PCLinuxOS 2008.1 GNOME installed
,----[ Quote ]
| It's PCLOS so it SIMPLY DOES WORK!!.
| But, this morning, I downloaded and installed it on my spare partition on my
| laptop (HP Compaq 6325). What can I say. Everything worked out of the box.
| My wifi was configured using ndiswrapper and after a small update using
| Synaptic (72 files) I had my first working distro running GNOME, in less time
| than I expected.
| What struck me first was the high quality of the graphical part. I am
| personally rather fond of 'dark' themes, and this one is really, really
| subtle in its simplicity.
A Look at PCLinuxOS
,----[ Quote ]
| The installation went very smoothly. I chose to set up an 8 GB partition for
| PCLinuxOS. The wizard shrunk my Windows data partition which I had as D:
| drive (it let me choose between my C: and my D: drives). Then, it created and
| formatted the newly-freed space to be my new Linux partition.
| I was also able to choose which of the Linux boot manager programs I wanted
| to use — GRUB or LILO. I chose LILO, since I've had more experience with it.
| Now, when I boot my computer, the first thing that comes up is the LILO boot
| menu, which lets me choose between booting PCLinuxOS and booting Windows XP
| PCLinuxOS was amazing and blazing running from memory on my notebook (a
| three-year-old 1.7GHz Pentium M). After using it for a couple hours, I took
| the plunge...
