SAM Linux Desktop is a self-booting live CD containing a complete and modern desktop OS. You don´t have to install it on your harddisk to try it (but if you wish - you can), it runs completely from your cd drive and your RAM. Ho ho ho! Merry Christmas! After more than half a year without a new SAM disk we are happy to give you a nice Xmas present: SAM 2008 "claw" release candiate 1. Here is the download: klick We wanted to release it as "final", but after such a long time and so much software updates we call it "rc1". We detected only some minor bugs, so there will be no big changes in the final release. What´s new: - SAM uses the newest XFce 4.4.2 as default desktop - SAM now supports around 60 languages out of the box - SAM comes with proprietary Ati and Nvidia drivers on the live cd, and compiz fusion pre-installed - many packages are updated to their newest versions available at the PCLinuxOS repos - OpenOffice was replaced by Gnome-Office (Abiword+Gnumeric) because of disc space limitations - SAM has a new start menu, a "hacked" menu from LinuxMint - the deskbar applet in combination with the tracker search tool gives you a powerful desktop search Note: if you have problems with non-starting SAM menu and deskbar-applet (after killing X or installing the 3rd party video drivers), run "restart XFce4-panel" from the "system" menu. Beside all this, the biggest change is unquestionable the introduction of our own package repositories, basically a slimmed down copy of the PCLinuxOS software source (thanx to Texstar for uncomplicated permission!), enhanced with some new built and some SAM-patched packages. This gives us the possibility to avoid conflicts with PCLOS releated software (i.e. theme packs) and also to make it a bit more easy for normal persons to "not destroy" their SAM desktop by installing the wrong programs (i.e. Nautilus, KDE stuff...). Advanced users who wanna have all the PCLinuxOS packages available still can use the PCLinuxOS software repositories, but wont get full support by our team (because WE use our own sources too). Again many thanks to Texstar and his team at PCLinuxOS and of course to MandrivaLinux for the great work and Server4You for the free server. Now let me come to an end, I wish you all the best and a happy new year, much fun with SAM - and don´t forget the feedback! Hafe fun, Nico
