Damn Small gets my vote! My lifesaver! I'm running Damn Small on a vintage (1995) computer for a couple of days until I can buy a new (2nd hand) computer to replace my main one that died (it was also quite old (5 years) and was cheep).

There's no question that Knoppix is clever, but it's the MORPHIX derivative that has set the standard for customizable LiveCD distros opening a whole new universe of microcosmic Linux variants. If you've ever tried to create your own sub-genre of Knoppix, you'll know that the instructions alone are enough to make your head spin, but with Morphix, you can make your very own customized bootable LiveCD very quickly, and so easily, you could give the job to a novice.

Since Morphix has now set the standard for LiveCDs as the foundation of a whole new Linux industry, I think it deserves the prize.

Besides, Knoppix is like, so 2003

What is your favorite live CD?

KNOPPIX by far. I use it to fix Windows XP and other Linuxes.
