PCLinuxOS Magazine Latest Issue (Nov 2007)

PCLinuxOS that was founded in October 2003 is free, easy-to-use Linux-based operating system for the home. It is distributed as a LiveCD, and can also be installed to a local hard drive. Locally installed versions of pclinuxos 2007PCLinuxOS utilize the Advanced Packaging Tool (or APT), a package management system (originally from the Debian distribution), together with Synaptic, a GUI frontend to APT.

PCLinuxOS differs from the other distros in that it doesn’t have a Debian base. PCLinuxOS gets its genes from Mandrake.

PCLinuxOS has a nice feature that allows the users to take a snapshot of their current hard drive installation (user settings, applications, documents etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD image allowing them to backup their data easily as well as create custom live CD/DVD.
