PCLinuxOS - Rolling on a river

Filed under
PCLOS

The best ideas are just as likely to spring from the users and developers of Debian, Gentoo, Arch or PCLinuxOS, who are contributing for fun, to 'scratch an itch', or just because they can - as they are from the better known and better publicised distributions and sponsors.

The informality of the free software model, and its ability to allow participants to find their own level, encourages innovation and the spread of ideas. Community led distributions are just as important to the success of GNU/Linux as Ubuntu or SUSE or Red Hat.

I love to package

PCLinuxOS is a community driven distribution of GNU/Linux, which began in 2003 with the objective of creating a Linux that was radically simple, "worked out of the box, looked fabulous and didn't require a technical degree from college to get it working."

    - Legend of Grimrock: Old school and modern gaming combines in this thrilling dungeon crawler RPG from Almost Human Games.

Unbeknownst to their captors, the mountain is riddled with ancient tunnels, dungeons, and tombs built by crumbled civilizations long perished now. If they ever wish to see daylight again and reclaim their freedom, the ragtag group of prisoners must form a team and descend through the mountain, level by level.
