Returned to PCLOS a month ago after a number of years using *buntu derivatives, due to a desire to be rid of systemd and some of the other "innovations" in that family of distros. PCLOS was the first Linux distro that I used regularly, about 10 years ago, but I'd moved away from Linux for a few years due to needing Windows for work.

For my return to PCLOS, I adopted the community version based on Xfce and had no trouble getting it working on my hardware. What few problems I encountered were easily solvable using the PCLOS forum, which as always is very helpful.

There was a time this distro was what Ubuntu or Mint is now, the "go-to" distro that everyone recommends. It's not the hot flavor of the month anymore, but it is what it always has been--very good, very reliable, easy to use, and easy to troubleshoot. If you want your Linux to "just work," PCLOS is an excellent choice. It's been so good to me that I've zapped my Windows and Mint installs off my laptop's SSD and gone with this as my sole OS. Hello again, old friend...

I might try it again. The last version I used was 2009.2, which was -very- good. Back then, PCLOS offered many DE spins (Gnome, LXDE, XFCE, etc). I never liked the 'juvenile' KDE, and still hate it.

When I updated my system back in '09, Bill tried to implement BFS (Brain F*ck Scheduler) but that really 'screwed' the OS stability. Let's say it was a 'preview' of what systemd would do to Linux. By the time they removed BFS and went back to the standard kernel, I had already quit using PCLOS.

It has the potential to be a top 10 again, if they'll stop worshipping KDE. I'd also prefer to see ZFS.

PCLinuxOS Community XFCE (4.12.4)

Pros:
No systemd. Uses SysVinit
Rolling distro
RPM based destro with Debian installer
Easy kernel install through Synaptic
Installs on 64 bit UEFI/efi systems fine, AMD or Intel, provided the disk is MBR and not GPT.

Install on MBR mapped drives only. Installing on GPT mapped drives could make the drive unbootable, blow-up other OSes, delete partitions, hang on shutdown, reboot on shutdown, etc.

Do not assign a boot password during install as you will then not be able to initiate the stage 2 installer after rebooting.

Install in Synaptic Package Manager:
grub2splash to change login/shutdown Plymouth splash picture
xfce4-whisker-menu-plugin for the Whisker menu
Mate-themes for the BlackMATE theme
gdm-more-themes
xfce-theme-manager
xfwm4-themes
ristretto - photo viewer
grub-customizer if you do not like the PCLOS grub menu
advert-block for hosts files install
cronjob-fstrim for ssd fstrim

You'll want to run "Configure Your Computer" in the control panel settings to add users, setup the firewall, printers and scanners; activate network sharing, etc.

*** Can install numerous Internet browsers: Brave, Firefox, Cyberfox, Waterfox, Iridium, Opera, Vivaldi, Pale Moon, and many others. ***
Install Advert-blocker to install host files.

Xfce allows a menu search box at the bottom left (like W10). Desktops opened apps all show up on the taskbar (like KDE). USB sticks automount when inserted and automatically opens a finder window.

Good selection of icons - Numix, Nutrix, iOS, Emerald, Vivacious, Vibrancy, Elementary, Dalisha, etc. (I prefer skeuomorphic icons, though.)

Download and run the Etcher-electron.AppImage toburn the installer iso to an USB stick. When burning DVDs use 8x speed, or slower.
