Mandriva, Mandrake, Lycoris "The PCLinuxOS 0.93a Full Edition was quietly released yesterday and is the equivalent of PCLinuxOS releases of the past several years. They have recently been releasing scaled down versions to accomodate other tastes and desires, but many folks were looking and waiting for the fully loaded edition. Weighing in at 685 MB, Texstar referred it as the 'Full Monty'. Its code name has been 'Big Daddy'. Whatever the name, I think you'll call it home."

Last time I checked, PCLinuxOS was Mandriva in LiveCD format, plus different default theme. Even the software repositories were Mandriva repos.

Has this changed at all?

AFAIK PCLinuxOS is a "fork" of Mandrake. Split away some time ago.

Repositories for PCLinuxOS are on Ibiblio. They are RPM-based, but the use apt indexing.

PCLinuxOS uses Apt4RPM and Synaptic as it's package management, which is not like Mandriva at all.
