PCLinuxOS Beta 2 Release Notes:
The Ripper Gang is pleased to announce the second public beta ISO release of what will ultimately become PCLinuxOS 2009. This beta features Linux kernel 18.104.22.168, KDE 3.5.10, OpenOffice.org 2.4.1, Firefox 3.0.4, Thunderbird 22.214.171.124, Frostwire, KTorrent, Amarok, Flash, Java JRE, Compiz Fusion 3D and much more. We request that only our more experienced PCLinuxOS users test this beta release. Testers are advised to install this beta into a separate partition for temporary use only. This, and any subsequent beta ISO images are considered static installs and will not be upgradeable to the 2009 final, so please don't install this with the idea of using it long-term as a work station.

PCLinuxOS is an English only live CD initially based on Mandrake Linux that runs entirely from a bootable CD. Data on the CD is decompressed on the fly, allowing up to 2GB of programs on one CD including a complete X server, KDE desktop, OpenOffice.org and many more applications all ready to use. In addition to the live CD, you can also install PCLinuxOS to your hard drive with an easy-to-use livecd-installer. Additional applications can be added or removed from your hard drive using a friendly apt-get front end via Synaptic.
