Linux: SAM

Filed under

It's a very nice alternative to PCLinuxOS, and offers one of (if not) the best out of the box experiences; SAM Linux is packed with all the proprietary software and media codecs, graphics intensive window eye-candy all in a single 700M liveCD that doubles as an installer CD, in and of itself a very impressive achievement.

SAM Linux is similar to LinuxMint in its relations to its forebears; Just as LinuxMint repackages Ubuntu with all of the proprietary gizmos--and Ubuntu is a more cutting edge, highly touted offspring of Debian, SAM Linux does the same with the highly touted PCLinuxOS, which is little more than Mandriva with a blue backdrop and less language support.

SAM Linux avoids PCLinuxOS' greatest failings.

Kraft out of KDE

Following my last blog about Krafts upcoming release 0.80 I got a lot of positive reactions. There was one reaction however, that puzzles me a bit and I want to share my thoughts here. It is about a comment about my announcement that I prefer to continue to develop Kraft on Github. The commenter reminded my friendly that there is still Kraft code on KDE infrastructure, and that switching to a different repository might waste peoples time when they work with the KDE repo. That is a fair statement, of course I don’t want to waste peoples time. What sounds a bit strange to me is the second paragraph, that says that if I decide to stay with Github, I should let KDE people know that I wish Kraft to not be a KDE project anymore. But … I never felt that Kraft should not be a KDE project any more. Read more
