PCLinuxOS 2010 - Familiar taste of radical simplicity

Filed under

I find PCLinuxOS to be the big small distro. While it has a modest development team, the final product has always felt quite solid and polished, beyond the normal expectations of limited resources. What more, the distribution managed a fine balance between speed, usability, familiarity, and luring in new users, not an easy task.

Well, version 2010 has been released just recently. Has anything changed? Is PCLinuxOS still the distro hopper-stopper? Is there anything new, radical, simple in the latest build?

Live session - Like the old, only with less fuss

First of all, the incompatibility issue with my T42 machine has been fixed and it booted this time without any problems. So, there's some good progress already.

The boot wizard, next.
