PCLinux has no sudo, one just types su in the terminal to enter a root terminal. At
first setup one can either setup a root passwd or use none. I enter a user passwd
at login in, and that is it, just like with Windows.
If anyone has any experience with PCLinuxOS, feel free to comment.
Not asking that - who is this Friar Tux guy and where does he hang out…?
Total Trisquel downloads since the 2.0 release: 893320
Can you read and count too…? I thought … were supposed to be good at multi-tasking
It’sFOSS moderator @Mina had to withdraw her incorrect comments - why don’t you? @4dandl4 was slapped down by Abhi and had his laughable Trisquel review demoted to …
Part of your groupthink and … What a joke and disgraceful language - you are creating a cesspit there - Urgh Scratch’n’Sniff
Ah - plural - name two referenced facts pertaining to a Full Monty Distro that can be used to browse web, email, write an illustrated letter or have gimp installed up and running straight out of the box like most regular members use.
Rather than some tiny single board device OS with no major software that can maybe switch a light on remotely…?
It’s been a while since I’ve used PCLinuxOS full time, but when I did I really enjoyed it. The interesting thing about PCLinuxOS is that it uses Apt to install software packaged as RPM. It’s one of the few independent distros out there. Be sure to check out the PCLinuxOS magazine.
Personally I like Trisquel or any other efficient distro - who cares how many times it is repeated or if the same people appear time and time again with likes and reinforcements. Can we all pay attention to our 600 million dollar Trisqelion man - Mark Shuttleworth noted “complacency is your big enemy” He and I would get on famously.
Facts and reviews by professionals are of much more use to our it’sFOSS membership. You guys must have missed or fallen down the massive security hole and missed other mega issues that lead one tester with 6GiB DDR3 RAM to conclude “Now I need to go and use some stainless steel scrub on my hard drive.”
Now who is responsible for this may I ask as my tongue is tied (in my cheek):-
Looks like they are way behind with the kernel too - Oh Dear
When asked about American H-D hog slow-poke cycles; I usually say “I am not a fan of agricultural machinery” so guess I can say the same about this American OS…? They - PCLinuxOS - have had 23 years to fix this can you imagine Trisquelion Mark Shuttleworth tolerating such snail like progress - me neither.
I have recently hashed together my own Full Monty LXDE-OS based on a Spanish OS which in early trials gives this level of efficiency…
PCLinuxOS uses 670MiB RAM
LXDE-FullMontyOS uses 263MiB RAM or 250MiB after reboot.
