I still use PCLinuxOS on one computer. Version 11.06 I believe it is called. It is very polished and I like it a lot. However, it is 32 bit and the lack of a 64 bit version caused me to go looking for another distro.

My other computer, the one I'm on now, has simply Mepis 64 bit on it and it runs nicely. There are some minor issues such as a volume slider that doesn't change the volume. I have to open the mixer and use the slider in it which works well enough. Also, M11, as...

& gave a leaflet on how to Erase that & install W7.

But- that didn't happen

so into the DvD drive went a Puppy4 cd & thus create four new partitions & erase the FreeDos

and then:- the Mepis11 onto sda3 & /home on sda6
followed by Mint10 onto sda1 & /home onto sda6
with sda4 in reserve, for future use.

works well ...

Puppy Wins the Printing Lottery

So now we have 3 Puppy boxes...and they all know where the printer is, woof!
