After messing around with PCLinuxOS, I finally decided it was time to give Linux Mint a try. The funny thing was I had the torrent file around on my computer but I never got around to downloading it and decided to give PCLinuxOS a try because of it's popularity on DistroWatch.com.
First a big thank you to the PCLinuxOS 2007 community for DONATING their time to put together such a fine Operating System. If you want to learn more about PCLinuxOS 2007 you can go to the following web site.
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?
I originally intended this post to be a review of 2007 Final for PCLinuxOS. However, after finishing it up, I realized that posting a review wouldn’t have the desired effect of truly showing off PCLinuxOS to everyone. It would just be a “business as usual” type of post. So, I decided to do a analysis on what I feel sets PCLinuxOS apart from many Linux distributions.
The article I am writing is about PCLinuxOS, but probably is not very different for other Linux distributions. A few weeks ago I installed PCLinuxOS for the first time and was impressed by the ease of stabilizing my internet connection and the speed of installation. Since that first day PCLinuxOS managed to surprise me several other times.
I have been using Linux for about 12 years now and a few weeks ago I discovered PCLinuxOS 2007. Being so impressed with this new, fast, and super easy to use Linux distribution, has made me not only an advocate but an evangelist. And I am a guy that can use any distribution out there regardless of the number of tweaks it needs to be ready for use.
