PCLinuxOS asks a single question before you’re logged in, and that’s the choice of your language. This step completed, the live session comes up. In my case, it came up weird, with the resolution set to 1024x768px, similar to PC-BSD. A disappointment, straight away. I fixed this manually, but it’s not a good sign of things to come.
he desktop has a familiar, somewhat somber look, with a predominant dark gray color and a somewhat archaic KDE4 theme designed to infuse the distro with a trans-generational look, somewhere between KDE3 and the latest flavor.
This is also evident in the system tray, the system menu, as well as the sprinkling of icons on the desktop, all of which feel a bit cluttered and not quite so productive as you would expect. The biggest issue is the linear menu with no search.
There were no problems, although a separate windows pops up when you try to configure your Wireless, quite similar to what I’ve shown you way back with Knoppix Adriane. This works, but it’s less streamlined. Bluetooth and Samba sharing worked fine, too.
Both Flash and MP3 did their duty. No crashes this time, but then I didn’t try to rickroll my browser, so that might explain it. I did not test some of the fancier stuff, like Apple trailers or MMS this time.
