Kanotix. Too bad it's not on the list. Kanotix is the fastest way to get a Debian-based (SID) GUI system installed and running. Highly recommended.

PClinuxOS rules man!
It is also one of the most newbie friendly- best looking- best hardwaredetecting- and complete distros out there.

I can't believe anyone would vote for another distro, must be that they haven't tried it yet. http://www.pclinuxonline.com

Hehe, well, ther are some very good distros out there, and to be honest, alot of people love Gentoo for what it is: a good learning experience that offers control, and once you've got a desktop, plenty of speed.

As for the raves about PClinuxOS . . . . yep, it's all true.

Knoppix... the only other Live-CD I've tried is Ubuntu Live. I really liked the looks (I'm not used to Gnome).

When I decided to show it to a friend who doesn't use Linux, though, he wasn't impressed at all. Neither was I!! I showed him how it'll automatically get him connected to the internet. Worked fine. I then thought, "What else can I show him?". I decided to play some of the media on his Windows partition.

That is when I discovered that Ubuntu Live cannot play MP3s out of the box.

Very unimpressive display... if only it was Knoppix, we might have a new Linux convert!

PClinuxOS not only has all the best-of-breed mediaplayers out there - amaroK, xmms, juK, etc., but it has all the codecs already installed.

Knoppix is pretty good, but the hard drive install is far easier on PclinuxOS.

Talking LinuxDefender to the rescue

LinuxDefender is the only CD I only carry on with me @ home and @ work. It allows me to recover data, disinfect windows workstations (even NTFS partions) and to play music and frozen bubble while I set up a mail filtering relay

I liked slax for the greater part of 2004, but the Recent Knoppix 3.7, won me over

MEPIS

Easiest HD install I've encountered (~4 default clicks if not dual booting)
