Filed under
PCLOS

ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I wanted to upgrade Ubuntu to 7.10, to install Sabayon Linux and to install PCLinuxOS. Yes, this was going to be a triple boot laptop.

gresak.com: This past weekend, I used one of our old desktop computers to install a copy of PCLinuxOS 2007. I took this updated system over to my parents house for them to try out as an alternative to their aging Windows XP system.

MiniMe, a Bite of PCLinuxOS 2008

Filed under
PCLOS

junauza.blogspot: MiniMe as the name implies, is a stripped-down version of PCLinuxOS. It serves as a foretaste of what has yet to come since the development of PCLinuxOS 2008 is still underway. Nevertheless, MiniMe is pretty much functional and can be installed and used as a complete desktop operating system.

PCLinuxOS is the best Distro

tonyrs-blog.blogspot: I really like OpenSUSE Linux, but the best distro is PCLinuxOS. If there was ever an OS that could help me 'throw Windows out the window,' this is it. Ive tried using Mac as an alternative to Windows, but I guess it just wasn't for me.

PCLinuxOS Day 11 - Documentation and Information

Filed under
PCLOS

ruminationsonthedigitalrealm.org: I am not someone who believes that a Linux distributions sells itself, that technological achievement is enough to push it to the desktop of end users. As long as the educational systems keep on teaching Windows-based skills, there will be a lot of users who need some hand holding, some guidance, some instruction. What does PCLinuxOS have to offer in this regard?

PCLinuxOS 2008 on my ThinkPad T61 - Part 2

Filed under
PCLOS

temporaryland.wordpress: As I mentioned on Part 1 of this review the version of PCLinuxOS I am using is the MiniMe 2008 edition. For those of us that already know what applications we need, the MiniMe edition is actually preferred. It is very easy to install the needed applications from Synaptic.

PCLinuxOS 2008: We have Another Winner

PCLOS

distrogue.blogspot: I waxed poetic about PCLinuxOS 2007 a few months ago when I compared it to Mint (and even earlier about version 0.93a). The new version, PCLinuxOS 2008, will ship with KDE 4, but at the time of writing, the final isn't out yet. They recently released a so-called "MiniMe" version of the final product with KDE 3.5, and it's better than ever- to the point that I would actually use it.

PCLinuxOS 2008 on my ThinkPad T61

Filed under

temporaryland.wordpress: A few weeks ago I wrote about my experiences installing several different distributions on my ThinkPad T61. One of the distributions I tested was PCLinuxOS 2007 and there were a couple of small issues. With the recent release of the 2008 version I thought it would be good to write about how this new version works on my laptop. However, that could be summarized in just one phrase:

Head 2 Head: Android OS vs. Chrome OS

A large part of Google’s OS success hasn’t been because of its awesomeness. No. Frankly, we think nothing speaks louder than the almighty dollar in this world. But both are “free,” right? So this is tie? Not really. Although Android is technically free since Google doesn’t charge device makers for it, there are costs associated with getting devices “certified.” Oh, yeah, and then there’s Apple and Microsoft, both of which get healthy payouts from device makers through patent lawsuits. Microsoft reportedly makes far more from Android sales than Windows Phone sales. You just generally don’t see the price because it’s abstracted by carriers. Chrome OS, on the other hand, actually is pretty much free. A top-ofthe-line Chromebook is $280, while a top-of-the-line Android phone full retail is usually $600. We’re giving this one to Chrome OS because if it’s generally cheaper for the builder, it’s cheaper for you. Read more
