I will agree with this 1000%.

PCLOS is unparalleled in the "easy to use out of the box" Linux category. It is the ONLY distro to work with ALL of my hardware out of the box on all of the machines I've had. The synaptic package manager is so simple to use and has a large selection of software that will install with no fuss or hassle. Compiz-Fusion installed from Synaptic without a hitch and I was using it within 5 minutes. I have never seen this on any other distro. The PCLOS "administration panel" is an easy to use GUI that allows you to set up everything -- from a firewall, GRUB, periodic security checks, partitioning of disks, SAMBA, Internet connection etc. It can all be done with mouse clicks, no terminal needed. To be fair, all of these features are taken from Mandriva (PCLOS is based on Mandriva, which is a great distro).

Even better is the "Mini Me 2008" fork of PCLOS -- it is a minimal install that allows the user to pick exactly what software he wants -- therefore there is no issue with bloatware and a bunch of daemons running that you have no clue as to what they do. SUSE is horrible with bloatware and Ubuntu is not far behind.

Now, you can run into issues with PCLOS just like with ANY distro if you try to compile software that is not in the repos. But, there is enough software there for almost any user -- from newbie to power users.

PCLOS is overall a great distro, seriously. You MUST try it if you are looking for a balance between ease of use and "tweakability." If you like Ubuntu/Kubuntu, you will LOVE PCLOS.

I have TRIED hard to find a better distro, but I just can't. I always come back.

It really depends person to person, depending on what setup you have. For me, it was Sabayon that had EVERYTHING detected and working out of the box. Compiz-Fusion was fully activated and ready for use even in Live mode.

Besides that, I've had a great time with Suse. It didn't detect everything by default, but it was very easy to install what I needed. Suse, in my opinion, has the best balance between ease and power.

Eh... Suse is one of the better distros I've seen when it comes to this. You actually get to choose what packages you want installed upon system installation. You can take out anything you don't want. Ubuntu just gives you everything. Sabayon dumps 12GB on your HDD.

PCLOS is one of the only mainstream distros I haven't used, so I can't comment. But Suse isn't horrible with the bloatware.

Interesting. That's the same thing I say about Suse. I'll give it a try.

Again, sound like me and Suse

I started off my Linux experience 3 years ago with Suse 10.0. 3 years later, I find myself using Suse again, back to my roots (Suse, 10.3).

Looks like everyone has their own personal Linux preferences. That's what's so great about open source - choice.
