Well,

For what you normally use a LiveCD for (i.e. rescuing data from failing drives/RAIDs and/or correct a configuration that is stopping your system from booting), I usually prefer Hiren's.

While it isn't a true LiveCD Linux distro, it does have PartedMagic's "Linux Rescue Environment" available to boot into which has helped me out of a number of issues. Also, it has a mini-WinXP to boot into to handle issues specific to Windoze.

But, now I am going to have to take a look at grml. (Thanks, dabreese00! )

I voted Slax, however I prefer AlienBob's Live Slackware.
For fast recovery I usually use the usbboot.img in the slackware installer from a USB drive.

Slackware Live Edition.

We send out a USB Recovery Flash Drive with liveslack with every Linux Appliance we ship, even when we install CentOS 6 on the Appliance.

Thanks Alien Bob !

I assume that by using the name "Slackware Live Edition", LQ adheres to the naming convention for the Live OS ISO which has been generated by my liveslak scripts.

Edit: oops, I should have started reading the newest posts...

Thank you.

Debian

Debian Live.

I used to use Knoppix, they invented it and are and remained good.
But since Debian also has live images I have not found need anymore for it. It can also be used to go on and install Debian onto hard disk from.

Seeing it's not in the list I guess it's little known? Am a bit amazed about that.

Antix for me. Just boot it and go from there without having to touch the hard drive if you don't want to.
