But my point is that PCLOS is really a distro aimed at ease of use and installation, with the Live-CD aspect being to try before you commit. It's raison-d'être is not as a Live-CD.

Debian has problems there due to its commitment to GPL-only, and not using other free (as in beer) licences.
I do not have to scour the web for the proper mplayer debs or rpms
Oh and by the way...is kanotix and knoppix still breaking after apt-get upgrade? If I remember correctly, there was a small problem with that.....
people around here will understand that our package system works just as well and gives us just as many choices as the debian-based distros.
I do have a question for you though...why would I want to adjust my sources.list file to make mplayer or mplayer-plugin work? Thats silly. Boot the damn machine and go to work.
