"One neat feature of the login screen is that, instead of the traditional KDE loading progress screen which tells you which systems have been loaded, you're instead greeted with a series of icons showing each of the major releases of PCLOS, starting at 2004 P0.4 and going through each release since right up to 2009.1 before loading the desktop completely.

"Once on the desktop, you're greeted by quite a nice looking desktop with some very well done artwork and theming. The new PCLOS logo is also quite interesting, and very modern looking. The kde menu has changed in the new PCLOS and is not the naked, basic KDE menu from the previous version, but rather has been trimmed down, organized, and cleaned up into five basic categories.

"Namely, "More Applications", "Internet", "Multimedia", "Office" and "System". Things are then sorted down into sub categories depending on their type and usage. The speed of the LiveCD is pretty good. Not record breaking, but certainly in the average for LiveCD's."
