Most distros offer Live media. Just go to the webpage of any distro (Ubuntu, Fedora, openSUSE, Mint, etc.) and click on the download link.

LQ itself suggests and gives you choice to choose your desired OS. Check following links:

1. LQ ISO

2. If you want to check which disto will be suitable for you, once appear for this test.

Have you tried looking at http://distrowatch.com/ or http://livecdlist.com/. You can also go to http://pkgs.org/ for loads of different Linux packages and programs...

I would say the most logical place to get an installation disc or live CD of any distribution is from that distribution's web site.

and softwares
After a system is installed, the best place to get additional software is from that distribution's repository of packages. The packages are optimised for that distro and are much easier to install than packages from elsewhere.

Look at Get Your ISO, LiveCD & Pocket OS section of SlackwareŽ-Links. More than just Slackware links!

"Most distros offer Live media." They don't even mention it in about half the cases that the disk is a live installer. It can run both live and used as an installer. It is almost assumed now.

I used to use livecd list. http://livecdlist.com/

Here's a link to Debian's LiveCD LiveDVD page, just choose your architecture and your preferred download format.

Depends on numerous issues such as :-

1. Type of processor
2. Type of Graphics card
3. Type of Hardware configuration (HDD, RAM etc.)

Over and above this it depends on your choice!!. From Wikipedia.org here is a link for your information and action!

Your motivation is quite noble but I doubt that the OP is still monitoring this thread. We know nothing about the specs of his/her machine so making a specific recommendation like yours is probably premature.
