PCLinuxOS reviewed in Linuxformat

Filed under
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."

SAS, Canonical turn silly over open source

Zemlin's job, in other words, isn't to convince companies to adopt open source, but rather to provide a home for the nurturing of open source projects, so they're worthy of adoption. Similarly, Canonical can focus on contributing code rather than spooking enterprises into adopting more. And SAS? Well, it should probably start with 40 percent open source adoption and grow from there. Read more

This Raspberry Pi-powered Linux computer packs a keyboard and display into a phone-sized case

What would you get if you crossed the $10 Raspberry Pi Zero W with a smartphone? You might end up with the Zero Terminal. The Zero Terminal is a homemade project by a maker known as Node, who has turned the Pi Zero W into a phone-sized computer with a slide-out QWERTY keyboard and touchscreen display.
