PCLinuxOS 2011.07 MiniMe KDE Released

by Ostatic Staff - Jul. 14, 2011

The newest MiniMe from PCLinuxOS is now available. MiniMe is a fully capable operating system but comes with less software than the full PCLinuxOS spins. The main idea is to allow users to personalize their system without having to uninstall too much before actually installing their choices.

New this release is Linux, Xorg X Server 1.10.3, GCC 4.5.2, and a basic KDE 4.6.5. The release announcement explains, "This is a barebones installation. No other software included on the the LiveCD. This release is for advanced users who know what software they want and how to install and configure it. Over 13,000 software packages available to customize your MiniMe installation."

The look for 2011.07 MiniMe KDE comes from the same brushed metal theme as found in regular PCLOS. This theme runs from GRUB boot screen, boot splash, login, to desktop elements.
