Pros: Easy to install, KDE 3.4, Firefox 1.04
Cons: a little slow booting up

Outstanding distro with tons of applications.It was very easy to install.Big plus is ability to log in as root,just like Mepis.
This gives it the ease of use like that of Windows.If you like to have more than one distro in your box, you must
include this one.

Pros: "Rolling Distribution"
Cons: Update/upgrade problematic

I have used PCLOS since 0.92, and it has been my primary OS since then. During 'big'/'major' upgrade to PCLOS 2009 some things got broken and/or really strange. All fixed within a very few days, but the experience was jarring from a distro which has completely spoiled me. Still, gets a solid "10" from this user. Texstar and crew have done an excellent job with this distro. Suitable for Linux noob or power user/guru IMHO.
