PC/OS: Insert CD/DVD, use desktop

The only error Preston made was in stating that all versions of PC/OS come in at around 700 MB and fit on 1 CD. I downloaded the Workstation version and that .ISO image is at 1 GB and burned it to a DVD-RW. I also agree that all of these bickering/elitist posts are ridiculous. Also, not all distro's need to use the BASH shell to work. Some people make it sound like you have to compile and run everything from the command line for crying out loud. Heck, I use Slackware from time to time and Slackware isn't even that primal. All Linux is asking the end user to do is know how to read and follow directions. This thread is a perfect example of assumption and not reading what is written by posts thinking PC/OS was PCLinuxOS.

It's a pretty sad state of affairs when people complain and whine about reading and/or learning. As an experienced Linux user, don't assume that I "like"or even look forward to tweaking every version of Linux I touch. I use Ubuntu, Slackware, Arch and openSUSE (Fedora and OpenSolaris sometimes as well) and I appreciate the time I spend with openSUSE and Ubuntu because everything works without me ever touching the command line. Mac is only the rich man's BSD, which is also considered open source, so be thankful open source on the whole is making progress or Mac might not even exist.
