PCLinuxOS is holding steady now. The decline seems to have been reversed. But only the coming years will tell whether it can become anything more than a niche product for a small select group of people mostly driven by taste and habit. If we must grade, then PCLinuxOS 2012.02 gets about 7.5/10. Not the best for sure, but decent enough. However, the magic of 2009 seems to be gone or hiding. All right, the quest continues. Ta-dam.
