Tux Machines (TM)-specific
NOT wishing to pass full judgement on a distro until it has reached its final release stage - it is not fair on the developers - I nevertheless thought it might be useful to offer some early, 'First Look' observations about PCLinuxOS 2010.
Rather than base my first impressions on a live CD session or a virtual machine, I decided to do a full install of this first beta release on a 10GB test partition in my Acer desktop machine.
Having gone through some internal turmoil in recent years, PCLOS 2010 sees the distro getting back on track, but in my opinion there still seem to be some areas requiring attention.
