I can list the things I found annoying...

* Did not setup wifi/network manager by default
* If machine already has partitions on it, and you choose the "remove
all partitions option", the installer asks you to reboot and execute
the installer again!
* Documentation, as Asheesh mentioned
* Package Manager/Auto-Networking would not let me override DNS entry
for /etc/resolv.conf, and rewrote it after I changed it manually.
* probably more...

I have never used PCLinuxOS as a main OS, but so far my experience
with it has not been so glowing.  I guess I don't see why it is so
popular, other than the reason that it presents the user with a slick,
polished KDE installation.  I am interested to hear any
