There can only be one.

And that is off course: PClinuxOS.

Both as Live-CD and installed on your HD is surpasses all other distros. I actually ditched Xandros and crossed over to PClinuxOs (and Xandros is one of the best distros out there).

P8 has just been released check it out!

I voted for SLAX, nice small LiveCD, plus I spent an afternoon creating my own LiveCD from the scripts made by Tomas and it was very easy.

Gnoppix. I was really surprised when I inserted it into a Windows machine of a friend and it popped up a window with Free Software for Windows.

I like Knoppix, it's a great rescue system for both Linux and Windows, but last night I tried PClinuxOS and it is stunning as a Live CD, so I have voted for it.

Still a problem installing it, so I cannot yet endorse that aspect of it ...
Sad git, quoting myself, but I will anyway:

The PClinuxOS CD I burned was faulty, for some reason it would load as a live CD but would not install properly. No I can't work it out either.

I burned a fresh CD and installed this distro in my experimental partition. Wow!

This has to be the best binary-based distro ever. It's easier to setup than Mandrake, it detects hardware both as a live CD and to install with the minimum of fuss (no changing colours and rotating lines like Knoppix) it looks cool where Knoppix's wallpaper is intrusive, its menus are easily understood and logically laid out, it runs glxgears on my computer as quickly as Gentoo and a little faster than Mandrake, it loads OpenOffice (when installed) from cold in 6 seconds, and subsequently in 4, OK there are one or two little quirks but hey this is still in development, and they don't get in the way.

There are reasons that I will keep Gentoo as my main distro of choice, but this is great! I would recommend it to anyone for the first time.

Yeah, I asked that too.

The question for the moderator raised by all whining posts like mine is: what were the criteria for a LiveCD's inclusion on the voting list? Without knowing those criteria, it is hard to judge the status or value of the list itself.
