Live CD distros with Python and Ruby

I've been searching around for a while now, and I can't find an answer. Does anybody know of any Linux or BSD distros which:

1) Come as a LiveCD
2) Have both Ruby and Python

Suggestions would be most appreciated!

Python is standard equipment in many distros. For a look at those which include Ruby, go here:

Some of the liveCDs are labled as such; many are not. You can use the distrowatch search function to get a list of liveCDs to compare the the list in the link above.

I suggest you try Knoppix or Mepis. As mentioned above, Python is pretty much standard on all Linux distros. Ruby is not always installed by default.
