PCLinuxOS

PCLinuxOS

PCLinuxOS is a free easy to use Linux-based Operating System for desktops or laptops, originally forked from Mandriva distribution. It is a user-friendly Linux distribution with out-of-the-box support for many popular graphics and sound cards, as well as other peripheral devices. The PCLinuxOS distribution was founded October 24, 2003 by Bill Reynolds aka Texstar and headquarters are located in Houston, TX USA. PCLinuxOS has additional support for over 85 language through our simple Addlocale interface. The distribution sports a wide range of popular applications for the typical desktop user, including browser plugins and full multimedia playback. Locally installed versions of PCLinuxOS utilize the Advanced Packaging Tool (or APT), a package management system (originally from the Debian distribution), together with Synaptic, a GUI frontend to APT for easy software installation. PCLinuxOS has over 12,000 rpm software packages available from official software repository.

PCLinuxOS has a script called mylivecd, which allows the user to take a ‘snapshot’ of their current hard drive installation (all settings, applications, documents, etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD image. This allows easy backup of a user’s data and also makes it easy to create your own custom live CD/DVD.
