Because "paldo" is featured on distrowatch.org, there is a good chance that people will browse the forum for additional information.
That is the reason why I'd like to sum up my first impression of this (new to me) distro.
About 2 days ago, I was working on an animation project when I noticed that the directories on my desktop take longer and longer to open. When the delay reached about a minute, I knew it's time to back up my work and re install.
For a long time now I have wished for a distro that was professional. No junk (or as little as possible) and geared towards those who need to be productive.
Today i have found the distro i was wishing it exists and God knows, I tried many over the last few years. My time is very valuable to me and therefore I want a Linux distro that takes the headache of endless configuration and frustration away.
First thing that impressed me was that out of the box, everything worked. Given, my machines were chosen with hardware in mind that is supported under Linux but still, there's usually a lot of time needed to set everything up correctly.
Here is what I love about paldo:
GFX drivers are included! YAY - We all install them anyway so why make us go the extra mile in post installation? Paldo does this right!
Next, this is the first distro that set up my network! I couldn't believe it! WOW, this is impressive.
The apps i need are available! Those are blender, gimp & inkscape first and after that open office, recordmydesktop and virtualbox.
I look forward to introducing this new find at work come Monday!
Thanks to Amnon82 for the fast reply and helping me getting flash and virtualbox going!
Did I mention that it is the fastest distro so far? My blender benchmark file rendered in one minute and 10 seconds that is 20 seconds faster than the previous distro i used!
Thank you to all the developers who created paldo! I wish I had known about paldo earlier!
