Filed under
PCLOS

Elegance and simplicity unite to bring you another compelling reason to switch to PCLinuxOS.

Zen Mini comes with everything you need for common daily tasks, and any other software you require is easily accessible through the Synaptic package manager. Definitely an excellent choice for older computers, or just anyone who enjoys self customization. Zen Mini also has a beautifully simple menu structure and speed to match many top distributions. Be sure to download this stylish Linux distribution from the PCLinuxOS team.
