PCLinuxOS 2010 (KDE) Review

Apr 21, 2010, 14:03 (5 Talkback[s])
(Other stories by Jim Lynch)

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"For this review I decided to use the main KDE version.

"There is also a "MiniMe" version that contains the desktop only, without all of the extra applications. If you are the type that wants total control over what applications are put onto your system, the MiniMe version is definitely for you. I, being somewhat lazy and not much of a control freak, simply opted for the regular version.

"What's New In This Release
Here's a sample of what's new in this release:

"Kernel 2.6.32.11-bfs kernel for maximum desktop performance.
Full KDE 4.4.2 Desktop.
Nvidia and ATI fglrx driver support.
Multimedia playback support for many popular formats.
Wireless support for many network devices.
Printer support for many local and networked printer devices.
Addlocale allows you to convert PCLinuxOS into over 60 languages.
GetOpenOffice can install Open Office supporting over 100 languages.
MyLiveCD allows you to take a snapshot of your installation and burn it to a LiveCD/DVD.
Parental Controls to keep your kids away from those naughty websites."
