Good news to Linux Desktop Users! Tex and Ripper Gang will offer PCLinuxOS 2007.1 soon followed by PCLinuxOS 2008. Now no more downloading of more than 400MB software after installing PCLinuxOS 2007.
PCLinuxOS 2007.1 will sport 2.6.24 kernel and latest stable packages from the repository. This release will have more drivers for the latest notebooks and desktops. The name "2007.1" does not seem fitting in the year "2008," but it is good as an update to 2007 release, and there will be a totally new 2008 version with much makeover and features.
It is due shortly, but don't ask when exactly. As they say it will be ready when it is ready. For more please read PCLinuxOS 2007.1 thread.
