"I was able to test drive PCLOS 2009, took some screenshots for
you all to see, and wrote my first impressions about this latest
version which you will about to read later on. But before anything
else, allow me to introduce PCLinuxOS to some of our new-to-Linux
"PCLinuxOS or PCLOS was based on Madrake Linux (now Mandriva)
and started out as a set of RPM packages. It was created by Bill
Reynolds (popularly known as Texstar) to provide an outlet for his
crazy desire to package source code without having to deal with
egos, arrogance and politics (as he said). PCLOS later evolved into
a complete desktop operating system with its own unique set of
features. It quickly became popular and even came out on top of
distro ranking at Distrowatch in 2007."
