PCLinuxOS 2008 ‘MiniMe’

Filed under
PCLOS

Is a minimal version of PCLinuxOS that comes with just the bare bones, allowing you to install exactly what you need; the liveCD is a very fast boot, and true to its Mandriva roots is extremely easy to configure through the Control Centre.

I downloaded this 279MB distribution at a netcafe, burned the iso file and connected to the hotspot there in a matter of moments, all without installing a thing–were it not for some files that needed backing up on my installed system, I would have installed it right then and there.

There is really no tougher test for a Linux distribution then starting it cold from an outside wireless hotspot and configuring it via liveCD mode.
