I too downloaded PCLINUXOS while waiting for this beta to come out. Thanks to clem who posted it on distowatch.com. He posted a torrent, .. The one time I don't check linuxmint.com first and rather raw it from a second hand source. I feel ashamed. But anyway distrowatch was a hot place to post a link to the torrent in the bulletin. and I had an easier download than normal,,, I even became a DHT and was helping 63 nodes, pinhole outgoing ports through firewalls.
Computers are SOOO educational - Kintaro Oi'!
