"And none shines brighter than Knoppix, the brainchild of German IT consultant Klaus Knopper; now up to version 6.0, Knoppix provides the best live CD and a DVD which is also installable.

"One of Knoppix' major strengths is its hardware detection; I have tried it on a range of PCs with all kinds of different hardware and never found it to fail.

"Another plus point of Knoppix is that it is based not merely on Debian, but on the bleeding edge unstable stream of Debian. The latest software is available in a well-crafted mix.

"Normally, when a geek has legendary powers in one area, one does not expect fancy and neat interfaces as well. Knopper is an exception in this regard - the guts of Knoppix are solid and it also has an extremely good-looking desktop design."
