Linux PolishLinux reviews PCLinuxOS 2007. "I must admit I am impressed by PCLinuxOS. And according to the distro slogan, which includes the two words 'radically simple', installation and configuration of the system is really easy, and the system is very friendly in everyday usage. Some of this 'radical simplicity' should be credited to hammered out details, and the system's elegant appearance (although this is a matter of individual taste). Regular users will find in PCLinuxOS everything they need 'out of the box'. Thanks to the consistency and the possibilities to configure the system with graphical tools (e.g. PCLinuxOS Control Center) this distro is close to ideal for those starting their adventure with Linux systems and migrating from Microsoft Windows systems."

and this compares well with the very much broader Ubuntu, Debian, Fedora & openSuse projects which have vastly greater developer resources.
There are many other very polished similarly small community distros like Dream Linux, Sabayon etc with a different niche.

Though PCLOS is my main desktop, I do spend a lot of time using other distros for their specific strengths for example easy LTSP setups.

So rather than advocate switching, I encourage people to settle with what works for them and the community they are comfortable in. If your presently a hopper, then by all means try PCLOS and use the forums.
