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.
