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."

I don't have to install Mandriva to know about the failings, I can read about them on the web. Just to be honest, I have and will continue to try PClinuxOS although I am a Gentoo user. It (PCLOS) fits my needs on some of my machines and also is a great LiveCD for others to try. One of my Windows Sysadmin friends tried it and loved it because it worked as HE wanted it. I personally disagree with many of Mandriva's way of doing things and their way of selling their product so I will probably not use it on that basis.
The point of my original post was to wonder why you had to chirp up when this didn't have anything to do with Mandriva and why any mention of PCLOS usually of brings up these posts.
