"The developers of PCLinuxOS recently surprised their users by releasing not one, but six different editions based on the included desktops or window managers. Or make that seven. Last week, a post on the project's forum revealed one more - a "KDE4 FullMonty" edition, a 3.6 GB DVD designed for those who expect to find in their distribution four different web browsers and five distinct media players: "The idea of the FullMonty concept is to provide the best out-of-the-box experience in an intuitive, thematically organized desktop setup. FullMonty is designed for Linux beginners and newcomers from other operating system, while Linux geeks may find this edition bloated. The typical user is provided with a cream of the crop selection of activity-related applications available in PCLinuxOS. The most popular ones are easily accessible from the respective virtual desktop and many more applications can be accessed from the PCLinuxOS menu." There has been no official announcement, so it looks like FullMonty is an unofficial "community" edition, but it's built from PCLinuxOS packages available in the official repositories. For those with fast Internet connection here is a quick download link: pclinuxos-kde-fullmonty-2010.iso (3,602MB)."
