Re:Is it really that good ?

One thing I know for sure that K/ubuntu does not do very well is the firewall bit. I mean letting you do things! It can definitely prevent you from doing everything like VPN etc by default.

In PCLinuxOS, its a simple matter enabling internet sharing with your home network, say. And everything seems to work -- that is *supposed* to work. I don't have to go tinkering with n-number of firewall softwares to do this. I didn't even know what firewalling software PClinuxOS used until I wanted to do the same with my Kubuntu installation. Then I discovered it uses shorewall. However, for simple tasks like internet connection sharing with the your home network, you would never have to edit a single config file.

Try it<nobr> <wbr></nobr>... don't keep getting heart-burns because others arre using it and liking it.
