PCLinuxOS, also known as PCLOS, appeared with the intention of offering Linux users a simple and easy-to-use interface. Although it was originally conceived as a fork of Mandrake (currently Mandriva), they have gradually drifted apart, becoming an increasingly independent distribution.

- KDE graphical interface that includes an LXDE window manager.
- Supports Nvidia and ATI graphic cards.
- Can play the most widely spread multimedia files.
- Great capacity to detect hardware and peripherals.
