PC/OS 10 Video Review

,----[ Quote ]
| I've been looking for a lightweight
| distribution to use on my Dell desktop with
| older hardware. While searching for a worthy
| candidate I almost immediately ran across last
| weeks release of PC/OS 10. With a familiar
| Ubuntu base and new improvements such as
| Google Chrome and Skype, I thought PC/OS
| Webstation was worth a look.



PC/OS 10 released

| We are proud to announce that we have just
| released the newest release of PC/OS. PC/OS
| OpenWorkstation and PC/OS WebStation are
| the two editions released. These replace
| PC/OS 2009 OpenWorkstation and WebStation.
| This release is based on the Ubuntu 9.04
| series. Some of the higlights that target
| the new release are as follows.


PC-OS 2009.03

| All in all, PC-OS is a good distro, with points to place it above Ubuntu, but
| the fact that it is based upon 8.04 is disappointing as it misses out on many
| of the improvements made in later editions. While it is lighter than Ultimate
| Edition, I still think Ultimate Edition has the edge over it when it comes to
| ease of use.


PC/OS 2009.3 released

,----[ Quote ]
| PC/OS 2009.3 has been released for the general public. This release fixes
| many of the hardware issues that users had with PC/OS 2009v2 series. With
| this release we went ahead and and installed all updates so all security
| updates since PC/OS Maintenance Pack 3 have been applied. The changes to
| PC/OS 2009.3 application wise are common across all releases except XFCE 4.6
| was not included in WebStation due to some issues that are being explored
| right now on some models of netbooks.


Review: PC/OS 2009v2a

| Overall, I loved PC/OS. At first I wasn't sure what to think of it, and
| really was somewhat underwhelmed to say the least. But the more I got to
| playing with it, the more it grew on me. After a while I found that I was
| rather impressed with all it offered and did.

| Open64 Workstation. The desktop distribution designed for 64-bit systems is
