Take a gander at Knoppix, an unique Linux distribution from Loadux.com. Knoppix Linux is a fully functional, bootable Linux OS that runs right off the CD. That’s right – no hard drive installation is required. It even comes with other fully functional open source goodies: the Konqueror and Mozilla web browsers, the XMMS media player and OpenOffice. It’s great if you want to test drive Linux hassle-free, or a maintenance tool for fixing messed up Windows systems. It’s free to keep, use and copy.
One Groklaw reader also points out Knoppix could even be the key to a guerilla marketing campaign for Linux and OSS.
