However, when a couple of friends of the Unity Linux team left that magazine, this topic was brought up again. I learned quite a bit more of the politics that was going on.. but there's no point in my repeating such stuff. It's just the same old same old..
I went way out of my way to comb through all of the settings of msec to make sure things are to my liking. However, my preferences have been overwritten by a default for the second time!
This really pisses me off to no end. The one thing whose configuration is amazingly important to not screw up.. gets screwed up.
I strongly suspect this was done by PCLinuxOS updating.
From "Hey, it's a nice day I think I'll open my window." to "It's almost 2am, I better get to bed soon.", here's another Linux install and bootloader misadventure.
What was, and probably still is, an extremely beautiful and easy to use distribution. Where Slackware had long-held the title "it just works", PCLinuxOS does that for users who are completely new to Linux.
From its earliest days its hardware detection was renown, its suite of software astounding, and its remastering capability extraordinary.
It was my daily driver for a long time.
Was nicknamed "pclos" for years.
