Linux: SAM

Filed under
Linux

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.
