Knoppix was my favorite on the list, although I recently tried elive (showcasing enlightenment) and I was quite impressed. A few things were still broken with e17, which is still under development, but it worked quite well. e16 was pretty much perfect. My only gripe with it was dealing with some of my monitors. A few of them wouldn't display it properly, even after trying a few different boot options. Knoppix does not have this trouble.

It went all too windowslike doing everything itself.
Both knoppix and Slax did the job for me, knoppix having better hardware detection and switching from X-version to the working one. Eventually I chose slax because its fast, it works perfectly, and has a server-sync system that allows you to freely store your configuration on a server.
