Yes, PCLinuxOS consistently has a very nice implementation, very easy to install and equally easy to use.
The last FULL version of PCLinuxOS, unfortunately, is a bit dated, going back to Spring 2007. The latest version is undergoing testing, and hopefully a new version will be available soon.
Also unfortunately, the test versions, such as this TR6 (Beta 3) version, are not upgradable to the final released version.
The PCLinuxOS project does have a smaller version called MiniME, which you can update and keep current. The potential issue with that is that it is a minimal system, and may not include everything you want; you may have to download additional software (not that difficult, but it does take extra work).
If you are impressed with PCLinuxOS and you like to experiment, you may also want to take a look at two MEPIS projects. AntiX M8.0, a leaner implementation of MEPIS, has already been released. It can run as a Live CD and it can be installed on a USB stick or onto your hard drive, or you can just run it live. You will be impressed because even from the Live CD, you can set up wireless connections, something that most systems require installation to hard disk, then some firmware downloads, to accomplish.
A fuller version, not quite final, but close, is SimplyMEPIS 7.9.96, also known as SimplyMEPIS 8.0 Release Candidate 3. This one is closer to final form than PCLinuxOS TR6, so if you liked TR6, you may love SimplyMEPIS.
These two projects release some of the best software out there.
Another pretty good project is the Linux Mint project.
Mint, PCLinuxOS, and MEPIS get my nod as the three easiest distributions for the newcomer to Linux software.
Others, such as openSUSE, Mandriva, Fedora, and countless others, have fine software, but I contend that they frequently have small issues (to some of us) that can be big issues, even show stoppers for the first time user, so I would wait to try these until you have gained some experience.
Some people never leave the likes of PCLinuxOS, MEPIS, and Mint, because they do pretty much what you need to do, and they can grow with you.
