I prefer the cd version but the dvd had kgeography which is a nice way of learning what flags and capitals relate to which country and vice versa.

the mapping function is not so flash but you can form your own opinion.

Knoppix

Likew aus9 I used the cd verison. I loved Knoppix 4 and ran it on my laptop until I dropped the hard drive. After replacing the hard drive I was going to install and use Knoppix 5. The only 2 issues I had for the little time I ramn it were: 1) The ndiswrapper never worked with my card. No I don't remember the card. I kept getting an error about ndiswrapper.ko. What I found on the internet was no help. The card worked fine with Knoppix 4. 2) I kept finding menus in German. I had download the English version but there was a lot of German. As I type this I'm installing Debian 3.1r3 on my laptop.

Not everyone has a DVD burner or the bandwith to download the DVD, personally I think he should have stuck with a cd version.

I used to always keep an updated version of Knoppix in my toolkit, now I keep Gparted, systemrescue cd and Kanotix.

Since this is the Debian forum, has anyone checked out the Debian LiveCD? It allows one to build a livecd version of Debian with the packages you want (that are in main at this time) with a quick edit of the config file and one command. This allows one to easily have an up2date livecd with rescue/system tools instead of waiting for a project/distro to update or spending alot of time trying to remaster the livecd yourself.

Check it out:

Forgot to add, you can install the Debian LiveCD package (if you don't want to follow the link) simply by doing:

# apt-get update
# apt-get install live-package

He is offering both the CD as well as the DVD versions and this I think is fair.
