Description: "Released Pinguy OS 10.04.2 'Revisted'. As 10.04 is long-team support I didn't want it to fall behind. This is an updated version, it's a bit bigger then what it was before (by 300 MB) because I didn't build this from scratch, I just updated the existing image. As of Thursday, 10th February, this was fully updated. I have added TeamViewer 6 to the install. After talking to a few people it seems many people that use Pinguy OS have installed it on a friend's or family's PC. Having TeamViewer 6 pre-installed will help them to give support and maintain their installs."

For this year’s Pinguy, I tested the 32-bit version. This is now the second most bloated distro after Mageia. It used 50% more memory than Ubuntu Gnome and 5 times the CPU load. Even after removing a lot of daemons and start-up programs (like one to download new wallpaper every 10 minutes), it was still heavier than Ubuntu and unbearably slow. It also took 3 minutes to boot.

Software included LibreOffice, Wxbanker, Firefox, Thunderbird, Xchat, Openshot, Clementine, VLC, Totem, media codecs, and flash. VLC kept going blank. When I ran Firefox, Wine started trying to install Silverlight and hung up the computer. Now that Ubuntu has a Gnome edition, this is a waste of time.
