PC Linux OS : Radically Simple

Filed under

My first experience with a Linux system was back in the year 2006 with Opensuse 10.0. It was the very first Linux based operating system that u have used. Over the last few years have used many Linux distros, many be due to the fact that I like to test and take a look at what other distributions offer when they make a new release. In this manner I have used Ubuntu, Linux Mint, Fedora, Mandriva & Knoppix but I have never used PC Linux Os. From the above distributions that I have tried, I mostly install them and test them. When I do test them I have a feeling that there is something missing. So after trying out there releases I always tend to come back and settle down to Mandriva. It has been my distribution of choice for the last 1 year. However very recently a friend of mine told me that PC Linux Os is a very good distribution and that I should try it. He also told me that it has very good hardware support, not that I have encountered any hardware errors in the past with any Linux distribution that i’ve tried, I downloaded and installed PC Linux OS on my laptop, which is an Acer Travelmate 6292 which has an Intel Core 2 Duo 2.0 GHz Processor and 2GB of RAM. After a couple days using PCLinuxOS 2010.1 I must say that it ranks number one in my list of favourite Linux distributions.


The PCLinuxOS 2010.1 list of FEATURES is very impressive. Nothing surprising there, all feature lists are when any new release comes out. That’s probably why testing a release after reading such lists may result in a bit of a letdown, for the end result usually never matches the expectation. This time around it was pretty much the opposite, which is very significant considering I tested Ubuntu 10.04 just days ago.
