View Poll Results: which live-linux-cd should i give out for christmas?
mandrake move would be my choice and the set up is supper easy and fast. i've tryed knopix and gnopix and both had a prob with display setting not permiting me to see anything. we don't whant to lure new people to linux with that now do we?
i would recomend making your own live cd with mklivecd. and place support for flash and other rich web media on it. that would make it look nice when they browse the web.
i hope your friends enjoy it and it wins them over
i think most of us would like to hear what they thought of it. let us know please.
For trying to win over winblows users, lindows live would be a good one,it's super easy also Mepis is good and easy to navigate, I'm downloading the new Knoppix 3.7 right now and it should be as good or better as the previous versions of knoppix.
