PCLinuxOS 2010 beta review

Filed under
PCLOS

Once upon a time, PCLinuxOS was the biggest desktop distro. It came from nowhere straight to the top, beating Ubuntu and other big distros.

But as fast as it rose to the top, even faster was its decline.

The next release was no where near as popular as it’s predecessor. The distro seemed to have faded into the giant pool of small Linux distros.

Is PCLOS once again a serious contender for the desktop with the 2010 release?

Installation

PCLOS uses an installer called Draklive-Install.

Draklive is fast, polished and easy to use.

It took around 15 minutes to install in my virtual machine.

Benchmarking Debian GNU/Hurd 2015 vs. GNU/Linux

After a reminder this week from a Phoronix Premium member about some fresh Debian GNU/Hurd benchmarks, here are some fresh results comparing this version of Debian with the Hurd kernel instead of the Linux kernel. The results for this comparison are done against Debian GNU/Linux Wheezy. For those unfamiliar, Debian GNU/Hurd is the GNU user-land but running atop Hurd -- similar to Debian GNU/kFreeBSD being powered by the FreeBSD kernel. On the topic of Debian GNU/kFreeBSD, I'll probably run a fresh kFreeBSD vs. Linux comparison again soon. Read more
