Pros: Hardware recognition, full repository, dynamic and thriving community of users, monthly magazine
Cons: None I can think of!

Rolling release ... no reinstallation every six months.

Dynamic & thriving community

Monthly Magazine ... The PCLinuxOS Magazine

Excellent hardware recognition

Outstanding selection of programs in the repository.

NOT Mandriva based! PCLinuxOS was originally, but is now its own, independent distro. PCLinuxOS pulls in the best of openSUSE, Fedora, Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, Arch and every other Linux distro. Even though PCLinuxOS uses the RPM packaging system, most Mandriva RPMs will no longer work on PCLinuxOS (they have diverged that much) without serious revamping of the source RPM.
