PCLinuxOS Updated - Almost Overlooked

Filed under
PCLOS

Somehow, I had managed to overlook the release of a new base image for PCLinuxOS. It might have been the recent very bad news for the developers and contributors, or it might have been my own inattentiveness. But whatever the reason, I don't recall seeing anything about it either on the PCLinuxOS web page or on Distrowatch. So, I have done some catching up this weekend.

FIrst, the KDE or LXDE versions can be downloaded from the PCLinuxOS mirrors. The ISO images are compatible with the unetbootin utility, so they can easily be converted to LiveUSB sticks. From that point, installation is smooth and easy.

Over the weekend I have installed this new release on everything around here, from my new Samsung P580 laptop (on my desk) to my trusty HP 2133 Mini-Note. Everything works just fine. Here are a few notes:

Our Favourite Apps for Ubuntu

We enjoy using Ubuntu mainly for gaming, writing, listening to music and browsing the web. (Lots and lots of browsing the web.) There are other apps that we would love to have on Ubuntu like Affinity Photo, a stunning image editor that’s on par with Adobe’s Photoshop that’s available on Windows and Mac as well as Bear, a beautifully designed note taking app that we do most of our writing on that’s only available for macOS. However, the Ubuntu platform has moved forward in leaps and bounds in recent years when it comes to the official availability of popular apps and we are confident that this trend will continue.
