ruminations: PCLinuxOS comes with a decent set of basic applications. OpenOffice.org, Thunderbird and Firefox are all there, GIMP for graphics, K3b for burning your cd/dvd’s, Amarok and MPlayer in the multimedia department. Synaptic is the tool to extend the range of applications and graphical environments.

koplowicz.com: I’ve been using Ubuntu (or a derivative) for two years now. I was amazed at how polished and user-friendly it is. It doesn’t come out of the box with a lot of the software I want, but it’s super easy to install whatever I want. But then I noticed the new cool kid: PCLinuxOS.
pcmag.com: The Ubuntu Linux-based OS that came with those sub-$200 Everex gPCs sold at Wal-Mart also now gets gBooth webcam software, online storage from Box.net, and some Facebook integration, so Google isn't the only one joining the "g" party.
Frederik's Blog: This week-end, I installed Mandriva Cooker in a Virtualbox virtual machine. I did a default GNOME installation from my local Cooker mirror. Here's a quick summary of the problems I found:

FOSSwire: With PulseAudio already in Fedora and soon to be in Ubuntu 8.04, it is sure to get even more popularity. But what is so special about it? One big feature is the volume manager.
manishtech.wordpress: The first problem which people face while switching over to Linux is the “unavailability of softwares” as they claim. They just try to run their windows installer/setup file and end up with frustration saying “Linux is so incompatible!” Is it really so?

pcworld.com: To say the $188 XO laptop produced by the One Laptop Per Child organization is not your typical laptop is an understatement. For one, the XO is a tech triumph for its low price and rugged design, and will amaze any child in a developing nation (the laptop's intended recipient) lucky enough to get one. On the other hand, anyone familiar with a Windows-based notebook and who expects a similar experience with the XO will be sorely disappointed.
thetechandcents.com: If OLPC team cannot demand that Intel would stop all their "competing with OLPC" programs, then by doing so they are crossing the line. I'm beginning to see sorts of weird "we're the volunteering for the poor, how can you compete with us? shame on you!!!" attitude.
