quoting Wikipedia:

The first Linux-based LiveCD was Yggdrasil Linux (went out of production in 1995), though in practice it did not function well due to the low throughput of then-current CD-ROM drives. The Debian-derived linux distribution Knoppix was released in 2003, and found popularity as both a rescue disk system and as a primary distribution in its own right.
KNOPPIX came out a few months before MEPIS according to

I would consider knoppix to be the first liveCD distro.

Hi Jeremy,

Aren't you going to include NimbleX? It's got a nice customizable way of creating you own live distro online. :)

My favourite is Mandriva. It detects hardware the best of all I tried and has Compiz Fusion enabled by default. I have to try PCLinuxOS one day.

If you want speed, utility, and a small footprint, DSL is very hard to beat.

antiX, though better installed.
