PCLinuxOS 2019.11 Releases: Linux-based Operating System

2 min read

First released in 2003, PCLinuxOS (also known as PCLOS) is a Linux variant for desktop and laptop computers. There are several special versions available for download, which come packaged with various desktop environments, including MATE, KDE, and LXDE.
PCLinuxOS implementation of the KDE control center is very easy to use. Change the settings, adjust the appearance and other operations are also very user-friendly. I still like to provide the installation wizard. Combined with the rolling release of the function, means that the release as long as the installation once, never have a second reload.


PCLinuxOS has a script called mylivecd, which allows the user to take a ‘snapshot’ of their current hard drive installation (all settings, applications, documents, etc.) and compress it into an ISO CD/DVD/USB image. This allows easy backup of a user’s data and also makes it easy to create your own custom liveCD/DVD/USB.

PCLinuxOS has additional support for over 85 languages through our simple Addlocale interface. It is safe and secure. You never have to worry about viruses, adware, malware or trojans infecting your computer with PCLinuxOS.

Changelog PCLinuxOS 2019.11

The KDE versions both full and the minimalistic Darkstar contain kernel 5.3.10 plus a fully updated KDE Plasma desktop. Plasma desktop 5.17.3, Plasma Applications 19.08.3 and Plasma Frameworks 5.64.0.
