Supergamer is, as you might guess, a Linux distribution whose main focus is on gaming. It's based on a lighter distributions, features a light desktop, and is chocked full of games and demos. It began life in the Spring of 2006 and was received with great enthusiasm. As time went by and with a few similar entries coming into the field, one doesn't hear the name Supergamer as much anymore. But this is tragedy.

In 2006 it was a novel idea. Provide a live DVD with little other than lots and lots of games. It offered a macabre hard rock persona and was based on a very popular distribution. It was a sensation. Later releases reflected a change from a PCLinuxOS-base to a VectorLinux-base. This was done for stability and higher performance as well as in response to user requests and the desire to become distro independent. Another update was released in 2008 after the 2007 changeover which featured a few application updates.
