PCLinuxOS is one of the worldâ??s up and coming providers of a Linux Desktop Solution.

About PCLinuxOS
With a small but dedicated development team, PClinuxOS delivers Desktop Ready Software that harnesses the power of the Open Source Community.

PCLinuxOS Preview 81a is an English only self-booting live cd that runs entirely from a bootable CD without installing anything on your computer. Data on the CD is uncompressed on the fly allowing up to 2 GB of programs on one CD including a complete Xserver, KDE 3.3.2 Desktop, Open Office 1.1.4, Thunderbird 1.0, Firefox 1.0, p2p filesharing and much more, all preconfigured and ready to use!

In addition to the livecd mode, you can also install PCLinuxOS to your hard drive using our easy to use livecd installer, assuming you like PCLinuxOS and it runs well on your computer.

PCLinuxOS is currently under heavy development and should be considered beta software. PCLinuxOS should work on most modern hardware and comes with advanced hardware detection. PCLinuxOS runs best on computers with at least 256 megabytes of memory.

Releases:
2009-02-06 00:00:00.0 PCLinuxOS 2009 Beta 3 has been released    View

Testers are advised to install this beta into a separate partition for temporary use only. This and any subsequent betas are considered static installs and will not be upgradeable to the 2009 Final, so please don't install this with the idea of using it long-term as a work station.

2008-10-22 00:00:00.0 PCLinuxOS 2009 Beta 1 has been released    View
The Ripper Gang is pleased to announce the first public beta ISO release of what will ultimately become PCLinuxOS 2009. This beta ISO features kernel 2.6.26.6, KDE 3.5.10, OpenOffice.org 2.4.1, Firefox 3.0.3, Thunderbird 2.0.0.14, FrostWire, KTorrent, Amarok, Flash, Java JRE, Compiz Fusion 3D and much more. We decided to use KDE 3.5.10 as our default desktop as we could not achieve a similar functionality from KDE 4. We will however offer KDE 4 as an alternative desktop environment available from the repository once we stabilize it. We request that only our more experienced PCLinuxOS users test this beta release and report any issues with it in the forum provided specially for it.
