PC/OS: Insert CD, use desktop

Sorry, but to start a review by writing PCLinuxOS is "Ubuntu based" makes me stop reading right there.
Ubuntu is a Debian-Derivative (based on Debian Experimental) and PCLinuxOS uses RPM-Packages with apt as the Package Manager.
To say that it's based on Mandriva would be correct, since Texstar initially built Packages for the Mandriva Distribution.

If a reviewer writes about what a particular distro is based upon,
he should do a minimal amount or research which didn't happen here. These things aren't hard to find out.

So when writing a Linux review next time, please do your homework.
