Distro Hoppin`: SAM Linux 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, if you like trying out new distributions, certainly give SAM a spin.
| Despite its problems, it brings forward some original elements that separates
| it from the crowd. Plus, it is packed with the latest and greatest software.
| I'm very curious about how the next release will be though, as the developers
| said that SAM 2009 is the last version using the PCLinuxOS base.

Arch Linux: The Simple, Flexible (and Fast!) Distro

,----[ Quote ]
| Arch Linux is a unique distribution, offering the latest free software via a
| super fast package manager coupled with a eep it simplephilosophy. It is
| fast becoming a very popular distribution and now thanks to their split
| packages, you can install a lightweight KDE 4.3 desktop for even more
| flexibility and speed.

SAM Linux 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| SAM is a pleasant, small LiveCD distribution that doesn't use Gnome or KDE
| (although in all fairness XFce does use Gnome libraries). The software
| selection is small but covers most of the common themes users will want.

| So, that's the end of my brief tour of SAM Linux 2008. It's a hugely
| promising distribution and I'm fairly sure we're going to be hearing more
| about it in the future.
| Well worth a try, if only as a very useful live CD.

Review of SAM Linux 2007

,----[ Quote ]
| It's a nice release and the XCFE interface serves it well but I
| couldn't say I noticed any real performance gains over PCLOS'
| KDE window manager.

| Someone once told me that SAM2007 is to PCLinuxOS what Mint was to Ubuntu
| and I agree; but probably not for the right reasons.
