PCLinuxOS is a rolling release distribution which, like many other projects, has been gradually transitioning to newer technologies. PCLinuxOS has migrated from the KDE 4 desktop to KDE's Plasma 5 desktop environment. The project has also shifted away from supporting 32-bit computers, focusing on building 64-bit packages and installation media. Some users of the distribution have decided to fork PCLinuxOS in order to continue support for 32-bit computers. The Uplos32 project was created with the intention of continuing support for users of PCLinuxOS who still run legacy 32-bit systems.
