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."

This is interesting, since I'm a Kubuntu user at work. Can you point me at some meaningful comparison between the two distros?


Well IMHO it doesn't really matter what distro you use. You can pimp KDE as much as you desire. http://www.kde-look.org is a great resource.

I recently switched from PCLinuxOS to Kubuntu, due to some minor issues. For example on one of my boxes the onboard sound chip was not supported and I could not get the Adobe Flash plugin for Firefox to work (no sound) on any of my boxes.

OTOH PCLinuxOS has a more sophisticated configuration program and KDE configuration center, which is very poor in Kubuntu IMHO.

Fortunately PCLinuxOS is yet another Live-CD, so what's keeping you from giving it just a try?
