Actually I'll put in an Aussie plug for them, as I run 3 of them on two machines.
NLUUG deserve kudos for their Netherlands server - quite often I don't have to change mirrors from theirs to an Aussie one because it simply pumps out the downloads at a very comparable speed for my capability.
I actually tried PCLinux back in 2005 or 6. I had a friend that was a Linux user that talked me into trying Linux and PCLinux was the version he was using. I built a brand new box just for the Linux. It was fairly polished back then, but not like today's distro/distros. I just didn't have the time to spend on the learning curve back then.
