    I heard of those Linux LiveCDs. Does anyone have a list of available LiveCDs, and which one is the best / should I use?

    Wow, lots of distros... Is there something like a "Swiss army knife", i.e., a live CD, that does whatever I need it to do (act as a rescue CD, start a full blown desktop when I want ot test Linux on new hardware, etc.)?

    Well, I'd recommend Knoppix, though I don't know each of the other live CDs... :eek:

    If you want to use Linux as a desktop system then you may want to try the Ubuntu Live CD.

    Even cooler is that you can order for free the CDs home. Take about 2 weeks or something like that, depending on where you live.

    ubuntu's live cd is nice for a first time user as a desktop and an idea of linux and to see if all works good on ya PC befor installing ubuntu.. but if you realy want that "Swiss army knife" in a live CD back/track is the distro for that
