oh come on! i tried it too and i got the same results on my laptop (except that the media buttons dont work anymore<nobr> <wbr></nobr>:P)I had heard so much stuff about this distro that i was planning to switch , cold turkey !but after playing with the live cd i decided it wasnt worth it.Every time i changed settings it asked me to log out.horrible windows flashback!also when i changed the settings on beryl manager and i logged in again nothing had changed!The repos are a bit outdated too.Maybe its very good for new users (hard to say how they d react to it) but i am not a new user and i would have to give up alot of stuff just to get a fancy kde theme !I am really happy it works well for you but ubuntu works better for me.Am i to conclude ubuntu is more carefree than PCLinuxOS ? no , of course not , thats called jumping into conclusions.Lets not forget that except newly converted users there are people who have been using linux for some time and we should be taking their needs into account too.


Return to New PCLinuxOS 2007 looks great, works well
