i've tried antix. i thought it had some fun-looking defualts, like the fluxbox WM, and really easy to use GUI. It was light-weight on my beat up old machine too.

Here, I miss the brilliant Wolvix, a small lightweight but very powerful Slackware-based live CD with excellent hardware support.

No Sidux? Its already at slot 21 on Distrowatch while only existing just over one year...

I would also agree with several other posters here. This list is nowhere near comprehensive.

I also wonder why sidux is not on the list... not mentioning Wolwix or splendid FaunOS based on Arch...

Kanotix maybe? It is still alive and still one of the best, IMO.

I prefer the minimal SystemRescueCD. It is based on gentoo, but I feel it's different enough to warrant its own poll option.

C'mon, add antiX to the list and make my day.
An up-to-date livecd that boots in 90 secs with only 128MB RAM can't be bad.

Zenwalk Live is the best live cd, bar none. Please add it.

Live distro of the year.....

I would interpret your title to mean the choice of the Live distro introduced in the year 2007, not any that are already extant.

I do not see the newest one ( and the very best) on the list to be voted for.

My vote stays here in this post for FaunOS based on archlinux kernel-2.6.21 which boots from flash drive, or dvd, and has a cd boot disc for systems not having usb boot. The system has 500 program packages on a 993MB flash drive. It uses aufs and can save session.

It is fabulous!!
