PCLinuxOS Information!

Filed under
PCLOS

There's a TON of (mis)information out there that is touting the demise of PCLinuxOS and other such erroneous statements. To combat this, I'm making a nice little FAQ for everyone so that they are up to date on information having to do with PCLinuxOS.

I've been in touch with Texstar and the ripper gang as well as all of those involved with the website design/administration and I can assure you 100% that PCLinuxOS is NOT dying. It is NOT going away. It is NOT gasping its last breath. So, let's get on with the FAQ:

I can't get to the PCLinuxOS Help Forum! How do I get help with my hardware/software problems?!?

The PCLinuxOS Help Forums are temporarily at http://pclossupport.forumsland.com/
Please post any help questions at this site rather than MyPCLinuxOS. Thanks for your continuing support of PCLinuxOS and come back here to join in our community projects.

What is the big problem? How can a distro like PCLinuxOS have so many server problems?
