He didn't, he said "it looked and worked great when i ran it as a
LiveCD, but after installation the screen was totally different and
there are no icons.", i.e. live and installed look different. While
new installs usually have a couple of desktop icons, they aren't
mandatory (should Alexandre's install have icons?). What seems strange
is that he didn't mention the panel/main menu, or lack thereof - is
the install broken, or does it just look different?

PCLOS builds numerous iso's ranging from MiniMe (CD size, minimal
install, the name of Dr Evil's 1/8th size clone in Austin Powers
movies) to FullMonte (full DVD size, standard release plus extras,
British slang for 'the works'). The initial (both unofficial) Trinity
iso became Big Daddy, presumably to differentate it from the smaller
Trinity MiniMe iso.
