I was over at LinuxISO and saw NetBSD-Live. Has anyone tried it? If so, how is it? Any and all info appreciated.
It seems more distros are producing live cd's. These live cd's are great when you are stuck at a windows terminal.

I have tried freeBSD but I have never tried NetBSD-Live. You can buy the NetBSD-Live CD for $1.99 at the same place where I bought freeBSD. For that price just try it yourself.

I just got done downloading it, so I will give it a try. Was just wondering if anybody else has tried it.

If you have the resources, can you test whether it works with USB keyboards out of the box? I've been dying to try out the newer releases of *BSD... but their stupid default kernels never included support for USB input devices... which for the time being is the only devices I can use due to the fact that my PS/2 ports are fried
