Packages are divided into the smallest portions (such as individual plug-ins and modules), what allows administrators to easy controlling the functionality of available applications and the amount of used disk space.

PLD supports network technologies (IPv6), security (AppArmor, Grsecurity, PAM, GSSAPI, TLS/SSL), and the flexible use of different natural languages to communicate with the user.

The current version of PLD is 3.0 and is in endless development stage.

The system installation can be made using PLD Rescue CD images, then chrooting into prepared, new disk partition or via a Live CD which offers Anaconda installer.

PLD Linux Distribution ia available for a various architectures: x86 (i386, i586, i686), PowerPC, AMD64, Sparc, Alpha.

In 2007 an unofficial version of PLD Linux Distribution was created – PLD Titanium. In 2010 a conflict arose between PLD project leaders and PLD Titanium creator. As a result the Titanium distribution was rebranded and in early 2011 separated from PLD with a new name TLD (Titanium Linux Distribution).

PLD is still under active development, and new images of Rescue iso is available from GitHub.
