paldo GNU/Linux Review

paldo is Upkg driven GNU/Linux distribution. It features both source code installation and binary installation. Though it builds packages like a source distribution, it also provides binary packages.

Latest issue of distrowatch weekly features a review of paldo Linux. This review observes that, paldo has failed to have a noticeable  grow it's user base since it's beginning. Though there are regular releases, it has a smaller repository and support for software packages.

While the project's documentation does not appear to state in certain terms what sort of development model paldo uses, it appears as though the project offers its users a rolling release where packages are consistently updated over time. The project's ISO images do not feature versions numbers, so users will probably want to refer to the paldo software they are running using the branch and date, for example "Stable 2015.12". Regardless of what label we assign to the installation images, the distribution is available in 32-bit and 64-bit builds for the x86 architecture and we can download media for the Stable and Unstable branches. I downloaded the latest Stable release, which is 816MB in size.
