Filed under

penguiniplanetblog.blogspot: Not too long ago PCLinuxOS released two versions of the PCLOS 2009 distribution. One uses KDE 3.5, the Other uses Gnome 2.24.3. So, I was faced with a decision. Which would I choose?

Back and Better Than Ever--PCLinuxOS 2009.1

Filed under
PCLOS It's been quite a while since the last update to PCLinuxOS back in 2007. While Ubuntu and other distros come out every 6 months, PCLinuxOS is considered a "rolling release distribution" that gets updated regularly as new stuff appears in the PCLinuxOS repository. So was it worth the wait?

PCLOS I switched from Gentoo to Kubuntu a month or two ago and while it was generally OK, there were several things I didn’t like. End result, I switched yesterday to PCLinuxOS.

pclinuxos2007.blogspot: I am a KDE guy. I have loved KDE for its superior usability and availability of good KDE apps. However, PCLinuxOS 2009.1 Gnome made me think seriously over Gnome.

For those who wish a new theme for their PCLinuxOS 2009.1 desktops, a nice one just showed up in repositories. It features a much softer look than the shipped theme and I'll show you the steps to install it.

Switching to Linux

PCLinuxOS 2009.1 - A Taste of an Old Friend

Filed under

sloppyganger.blogspot: My goal was to check on what was new in this distro but not necessarily to fully replace my installation of Ubuntu 8.10. After about 10 minutes in 2009.1, I could not double click the "Install" icon on the desktop fast enough.

Long story short, Russia is contemplating the hypothesis of domestic regulation, rather than an intergovernmental agreement between major countries involved. Testament to this intent are Russian focus towards cryptographic protection and the plan of the country to substain such autarchics drives with national production of chips and direct control of both analog and digital TV frequencies.
