PCLinuxOS 2010 beta review

Once upon a time, PCLinuxOS was the biggest desktop distro. It came from nowhere straight to the top, beating Ubuntu and other big distros.

Like the Phoenix, this blog rises from the ashes.

It seems I back. I’ve taken a long, long break from this blog. I thought I was done with it but I was wrong.

The tone of this blog will change. I am no longer intrested in doing how-to’s. I will review Linux distro’s, applications and trends and give my opinion on them.
