Why and when did you start using Linux?
I started getting interested in Linux after one of many virus invasions on my Windows machines. I grew tired of all the restrictive stuff that went along with using Windows. Seems I had to reinstall every couple of months. My first distro was Mepis. It was then that I realized that there were viable alternatives to Windows. But there seemed to be something missing. I searched further and came across I came across PCLinuxOS Version .92 I believe.It was just a wonderful operating system and did everything i needed out of the box. Been using it ever since. What a fine operating system it is.
What specific equipment do currently use with PCLOS?
Currently I use PCLinuxOS KDE 5 plasma on a mid 2009 Mac Book with a Core2 duo processor. It runs beautifully. I have had up to 5 different machines at a time all with PCLinuxOS on them.
What would you like to see happen within PCLOS that would make it a better place. What are your feelings?
It is a great place now. The powers that be behind this great operating system do everything they can for the community to make this project possible. The forums are pleasant and extremely helpful. The thing I would like to see most is the donations pick up to keep this distribution going into the future. I just donated. I wish more would.
