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 have ran PClinuxOS besides ubuntu and think it's equal or even better. Especially for beginners new to linux the good configuration screen doesn't have to hide for example the OpenSuSE counterpart.

While you can't argue about taste i like the pclinuxos aestetics more than the original mandriva. In my opinion pclinuxos 2007 is what OpenSuSE should have been a long time ago. I'm curious to know what ubuntu comes up with their next release in terms of a configuration screen and apparmor for instance.I wish ubuntu could integrate mandrivas msec in addition to apparmor.

Ubuntu and PClinuxOS are on place 1 and 2 in the distrowatch hitlist for a good reason

Completely agree.

I think it's no coincidence that the 2 top distro's (according to distrowatch) are 2 of the most professionally presented distro's out there.

I've been using Mandrake or Mandriva as my primary platform for 5 years, but I just installed PCLinuxOS on two auxiliary PCs and I am very impressed. I may even switch my main Mandriva machine.
