A Windows Users Delight: PCLinuxOS

October 6th, 2006 1 comment

Really Linux has an overview of PCLinuxOS.

PCLinuxOS offers the flexibility of being both a Live-cd, and including all necessary components for a full installation. As a Live-cd version it can boot directly from a CD drive without any installation to the hard disk. But more importantly, it includes an easy to use installer that allows you to fully install Linux when you are ready. Of course, as with many major distributions, there are excellent guides on the website for helping use the installer.

PCLinuxOS shines, despite dull name

September 8th, 2006 Comments off

DesktopLinux is reporting on a review of PCLinuxOS done by ExtremeTech which we completely missed last week.

Although it suffers from an incredibly boring name, PCLinuxOS has a lot to offer desktop Linux users. It’s a shame that so much utility has to be obscured by a bland nameā€”but hopefully the developers will decide to rebrand this distribution under a catchy name.

I never had a problem with the name, but then, it is quite different than Beernix.

April 21st, 2006 1 comment

DistroWatch has announced PCLinuxOS 0.93 MiniME, a lightweight, PCLinuxOS based LiveCD. OSDir brings the eye candy with screenshots. With PCLinuxOS releasing a lightweight version, and Damn Small Linux recently coming out with a heavier version, is the future of Linux LiveCDs two-disc, heavy and lightweight releases? GoblinX, GRML, Knoppix, Mepis/MepisLite, SLAX SE/SLAX Popcorn, and Ubuntu/Xubuntu are a few others who already separate release versions into the two camps.

PCLinuxOS 0.92 Review

April 11th, 2006 Comments off has a review of PCLinuxOS 0.92 written for people looking to try out Linux.

One boring evening I was surfing around and jumped to PCLinuxOS web-site. Hmm, they have a live-cd and a statement saying that it works ‘out of the box’ on the most computers, and will not touch hard drive.
