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."

PCLinuxOS looks nice but its missing two things:

1) 64-bit version with multiple libraries so 32-bit apps can run coincidingly.

2) Needs more security features like SELinux, Exec-Shield, and all the other nice security features you will find in RedHat-based distros. After all... Windows Vista has most of these. All Linux distros should too.

Number 1 is nice but I wont reguarly use a distro without number 2... so I guess I'm a Fedora user then? :-P
