"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 readers:

"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."
