PCLinuxOS distro hopper stopper, 2009 Beta 1 is out

Posted on October 19, 2008

I stopped distro hopping over 2 years ago since I found PCLinuxOS, I’ve hopped from Ubuntu and it’s variants – Kubuntu and Xubuntu, I’ve also tried openSUSE, Mint, Mandriva, Dreamlinux, Debian, Sabayon and many other flavors I downloaded, burned and installed.

The first thing that drew me to the linux community was pretty embarrassing – the 3D desktop effects! My focus back then was eye-candy and the bragging rights to say “I use Linux, can your PC do this?”. PCLinuxOS had the best 3D desktop effects that ran out of the box. After a few months, my focus changed to stability, power and ease of use. Still hopping around, I kept coming back to PCLinuxOS. Hardware detection was superb, I was doing everything in PCLinuxOS – office documents, browsing, image editing, programming, etc., even Ruby was installed by default! Everything just works.

It’s been quite a while since PCLinuxOS has made a major release because it’s a rolling distro, you get the latest version just by upgrading everything from synaptic. Initially I was excited to try out and even install the 2009 beta 1 release. I downloaded the iso from http://distrowatch.com and tried it using VirtualBox.

After a few minutes of playing around and trying to find bugs I realized there was no need to jump into this release, after all it’s a beta. I figured I wasn’t missing much features from my current PCLinuxOS 2007 installation. Everything seemed so familiar, the only noticeable change was the Mandriva inspired graphics. I’m looking forward to the next beta release, try to find a bug and hopefully contribute to a more solid PCLinuxOS 2009 final release.
