PCLinuxOS Br Edition Light Feather 2014.3
The default language is Brazilian Portuguese, except for the boot prompt and the keyboard layout selector. Various other editions are available for download on Softpedia, including KDE, Enlightenment, GNOME, LXDE, Razor-qt, and Openbox.
Availability and boot options
This IceWM flavor is distributed as a single Live DVD ISO-hybrid image that can be used from a USB flash drive (2GB or more) or a DVD disc. Default username/password combinations for the Live DVD are guest/guest and root/root.
Default boot options include the ability to run the live environment with default options, in safe graphics mode, copy the entire ISO to RAM (system memory - 2GB or more are recommended), use a shell prompt, install the distribution, as well as to use the safe graphics and failsafe modes.
Old-school window manager, modern applications
As mentioned, this edition uses IceWM for the graphical session, which provides users with a lightweight and traditional window manager/desktop environment comprised of a single taskbar located at the bottom edge of the screen.
The taskbar can be used to access the main menu, quickly switch between virtual workspaces, interact with running applications, as well as to access various system tray functions and programs.
Default applications include the Gnumeric spreadsheet editor, AbiWord word processor, Midnight Commander two-panel file manager, Evince document viewer, PCManFM file manager, QupZilla web browser, Synaptic Package Manager, GPicview image viewer, and BleachBit system cleaner.
In conclusion, PCLinuxOS Br Edition LF is a decent distribution of Linux that provides users with a classic/traditional operating system specifically designed to be deployed only on low-end machines or computers with old hardware components (from 2003-2005), and works with S3 Unichrome video cards and SiS videocards.
