Two years with PCLinuxOS as main OS

Filed under
PCLOS

My first contact with PCLinuxOS was two years ago in January when the 2007 Test Releases were being rolled out. Although I was a happy Suse, then openSUSE user, I lost the connection, the good feel I used to have with their 9.3 and 10.0 releases once the 10.1 became available.

I went looking for another distro and amid several releases I tried, a small distro managed to get my attention. It was PCLinuxOS2007 Test Release 3. No sooner did I installed it on my desktop, the 'I feel at home' feeling popped up.

I felt so at ease with PCLinuxOS that I started to help quite a few newcomers who posted questions on our forum.

Apparently my inputs must have been noted by NewMikey and DutchWolfie, because beginning 2008 I was asked if I would like to join their team as a moderator.
