"Knoppix is a 'Live CD' version of Linux, which means a
distribution which boots from a CD and allows you to use a wide
array of built-in programs and utilities without ever having to
install anything on your hard-drive. Such a CD is useful for people
who are often on the road, and wish to always have Linux with them.
Another benefit of a 'Live CD' is that it allows Windows users who
are considering migrating to Linux to give Linux a try without
worrying about losing all of their Windows files and settings if
they don't end up liking it.
"Knoppix 3.6 is the latest Knoppix release, and comes with an
impressive array of software, including KDE 3.1. One thing to note,
however, is that Knoppix is a German Project, so much of the
website and documentation is in German.
