GREAT backup system! At least for me as a student, I need my computer. This not only lets me boot up to repair problems, but also gives me OpenOffice, a few games, XMMS, etc. In other words, if I, for example, have to get a paper done and the system won't boot normally, then this lets me get it done and THEN worry about fixing the computer. I use Debian Sid, so every once in a while, I'll get a pain-in-the-arse problem and Knoppix is da bomb at getting around it. There are 2 downsides that I can see, though: kernel 2.4 (too old for some of my stuff), and the fact that some hardware still isn't supported. Admittedly, I'm specifically refering to the infamous ACX100 802.11b cards, but internet stuff really should be better supported. After all, I need the internet for LinuxQuestions.org ! :-) . I have to get around that by putting the driver on a floppy and mounting then inserting the module, which is a pain to have do. Anyway, overall rating is extremely good. It's not really for a day-to-day OS (not updated enough), but GREAT for a backup / in event of only having winblows computers around ;-) .
