Review: PCLinuxOS 2010 Gnome – With Screenshots

Filed under
PCLOS

PCLinuxOS, to my mind, has always been a KDE distro. I have used the Gnome edition a little before, mostly with a friend of mine who fiddled around with as many distro’s he could get his hands on and then invited me over to come check out some things for him.

PCLOS Gnome is busy. A lot is going on in the menus. It feels cluttered. One instant gripe I have is duplication of functionality in the menus. The APPLICATIONS menu has some sub menus that are repeated under the SYSTEM > PREFERENCES or the SYSTEM > ADMINISTRATION menu. I think more time could have been spent placing those menus in their proper parent category.

PCLinuxOS Gnome is pretty, if a bit dark. It definitely lacks the polish of say Mint, and you get the feeling that the icon set, for instance, belongs to various different themes. Work is needed to refine the look, but this is a minor gripe.

You get a lot of packages with your PCLinuxOS Gnome.

ASF publishes long-overdue Code Of Conduct

We pride ourselves at The Apache Software Foundation on our principles of "community over code" and "don't be a jerk". But, alas, we've been slow to codify some of these things in public. Part of this, I'm sure, is that it’s easy to think we all just know how we're supposed to treat people, and so you shouldn't have to say, right? Read more
