News Comments Off on PCLinuxOS 2020.01 updated installation media release

The PCLinuxOS Project has announced the release of updated installation media for PCLinuxOS. The new media carries the version number 2020.01 and contains a fully updated system as of January 13, 2020. It is not required to do a clean installation each month since PCLinuxOS is a rolling release. These ISOs are being provided so new users don’t have a large update to perform after installation from a dated ISO. Please note if you plan on booting and/or installing PCLinuxOS 2020.01 in Virtualbox then please use Virtualbox 6.1.0 or better as it has support for the 5.4.x kernels.

The KDE ISOs now come in 3 sizes.
