PCLinuxOS review by David F.

"Free really makes you biased towards something..."

What do you like best?

As stated above the free software certainly has a very attractive price tag. It's not regularly used as an OS by the general public which tends to lend itself to hack prevention by default. It's not popular for the obvious reason as it's not preinstalled on computers. If people would try it out themselves they would come to find a very comfortable OS.

What do you dislike?

Too much like windows? In a way hurts it I think? Also not enough like windows in other ways. Really just nitpicking but certain things are not as intuitive as they should be with a lifetime of Windows under someone's belt. But google will be your friend for awhile and things will come up roses.
