Everybody knows PCLinuxOS is radically simple, right? And it is. It's one of the best Live CDs around because it has all the non-free codecs and plugins installed by default, it's easy to install on the harddisk, and it doesn't require much configuration afterwards – unless you are one of those people that like to configure, tweak and personalize their OS to the point of turning it into a new distro.
I always thought replacing urpmi with Synaptic was a good decision, but switching to the Sections view I realized not everything is radically simple in PCLinuxOS. Or logical, for that matter.
There are so many sections and some of them are clearly overlapping. It's hard to grasp the logic used by Texstar and the Ripper Gang for organizing the repositories into these sections. I'm sure it makes sense to them, but not to the users who are expecting radical simplicity.
