SAM Linux Desktop, a live and installation CD based on PCLinuxOS 2007, is a Xfce 4.4 Linux distribution for home users. The distribution is enhanced by several popular applications, such as Adobe Flash plugin, Java and RealPlayer. These applications are non-free. Others include Mozilla Firefox, Wine and OpenOffice.org 2.2, which are all free.
In Autumn 2004 saw the first release of the Mandriva Linux-based version of SAM Linux. Originally only about 200 MB the mini-distribution was gradually made into a fully-fledged, fully bootable CD desktop system. Since the 2007 version of SAM is based on PCLinuxOS and closely follows the publication cycle.
