mypclinuxos.com, the newest addition to the PCLinuxOS community, is proud to announce the official launch of their website at http://mypclinuxos.com.
PCLinuxOS (PCLOS) is a nicely-developing, Live-Linux on CD distribution. It is a good desktop Linux, which also can be installed permanently if you like. PCLinuxOS has become increasingly eclectic, drawing on packages from several of the best Linux distros, we asked PCLinuxOS founder and leader, Texstar, about that in an e-mail discussion.
If you need a very easy to install, feature complete Linux distribution, do not look any further than PCLinuxOS. This gem of a distribution is an absolute joy to use.
Systemtrash... what dorks! If they've never heard of grub or Mandriva, what the heck are they doing? Ok, to be fair the one guy seems to know a little about linux, but the other one - he must own the equipment. This week they "trashed" our beloved PCLinuxOS. And thing one thing that stuck out for me was the quoting from or reading of the background on Texstar and PCLinuxOS from my site, but no credit given. Hey, where's my link guys!? I sent them an email.
I played with PCLinuxOS (I feel the old site is nicer) a long time ago, when it was something like 0.8-pre. And I was impressed -- the only caveat to me was it was KDE-only. A few days ago I booted into the LiveCD of PCLOS 0.92 and Let's get GNOME!
The first original story run here on Tuxmachines was Genesis of an Operating System, a story of the creation and evolution of PCLinuxOS. I was thinking of running a "rerun" when it hit its one year anniversary, but with all the excitement of the new website for PCLinuxOS, I figured I'd strike while the iron was hot. Read up on your favorite developer and mine Here.
PCLinuxOS, a user-friendly distribution that has found many followers among the DistroWatch readers, has unveiled a new web site and forum: "Texstar and The Ripper Gang are proud to announce the official website for PCLinuxOS. We now have a home of our own thanks to the support from donations received last month.
Once upon a time there was a packager from Texas whose rpms became so popular he had to make a distro to contain them. He searched high and low for most beautiful eye candy. He patched and pre-linked applications until they screamed with speed. He tweaked and compiled until they were stable. He added gui tools, drivers, and plugins until every user could work like a pro. He kept working on that distro, release after release, until this very day. That distro is known as PCLinuxOS, and the day version .92 was released, cries of joy were heard throughout the land as many microsoft slaves and linux grunts were set free. Free, free, free at last. Texstar has set us free.
I've posted my screenshots for my upcoming review of the newly released PCLinuxOS .92 to whet your appetite while I finish up the review.
On behalf of the PCLinuxOS engineering team, I'm happy to announce that PCLinuxOS 0.92 is now available for download in 4 different versions and two more in the works.
Last month Linux Magazine Brazil included a cd with PCLINUXOS, version 0.91, for all readers.
Test 04 of the upcoming PCLinuxOS .92 was uploaded yesterday and early reports are very good! This may be the final testing until gold.
Since I decided to wait for the final to re-review PCLinuxOS v0.92, I thought I'd pass along these links to the many many screenshots.
From time to time a Linux distribution comes along that just works. Often review writers call them “Windows Killers!” PCLinuxOS version .92 test 2 is one of those special, English only, distros that can make an old Windows user into a new Linux user.
