PCLinuxOS reviewed in Linuxformat

PCLOS
Reviews

The March 2005 issue of Linux Format (a British Linux mag also online at www.linuxformat.co.uk) has a comparison of "PCLinux OS v. Knoppix," pages 26-27, by David Coulsen. He gives PCLOS 7 of 10 stars, versus Knoppix's 10/10. While PCLOS gets a generally positive review, Coulsen says,

"there are still rough spots, and whole feel of the user interface is not quite as clean or polished Knoppix.... As a recovery method, it's not quite there."

Jamie writes, "From my own experience, I would put the polish in PCLOS considerably ahead of Knoppix, and I don't happen to use the PCLOS disk for recovery. But to each his own. Linux Format is, IMHO, the best out there -- lively writing, free Linux disks every month, and a good round-up of what's going on. Good to see our favorite getting more international exposure."
