PCLinuxOS Preview 7 Review
I came across PCLinuxOS because I am inpatient. I got a new laptop last week and what I look for in a linux distribution is that it must look good and work good. I keep trying different linux distributions but always seem to come back to Mandrake. So, as soon as I got home, I went to download Mandrake 10, but discovered that it was 4 whole CD's. Shock, horror! I didn't want to wait to download all that before playing with my new laptop! Over I went to DistroWatch and found PCLinuxOS. Livecd (read: only 1 CD to download!), based on Mandrake, installable and latest version of the KDE desktop - perfect!
