That's so cool, Exploder. I have played with PCLinuxOS (KDE and Xfce) before and thought it was pretty cool, but two things put me off for now:
The first was hardware issues (mostly sound, but shut-down stuff too... I hate using the power-off button or "halt" command). The second was - um, forgive me but... "bloat!"*
And people say Xubuntu got bloated, but omygosh. PCLinuxOS' Xfce mix (Phoenix) is super-ultra-mega-bloated with all kindsa extra stuff I'll never use. I know, easily removed, but wow. It's gorgeous though. But slower than Xubuntu and a LOT slower than Mint Xfce.
The community there is very friendly though, and very supportive of kids like me (as long as those kids take the time to search before asking questions that have been answered a zillion times already). And requests for stuff in the repos are handled very quickly! I asked for Xournal and got it in the repo the same day! Plenty of support, rolling release, great community, alot to like about PCLinuxOS.
My big brother uses the Gnome version and loves it. If it ran better on my old hand-me-down I'd be torn between it and Mint Xfce.
I've written about "bloat" before that I think the term is way too overused and applied to things it shouldn't be. I even wrote a blog post on Linux.com about it at http://www.linux.com/community/blogs/what-is-bloat.html
