as i am learning about the *nix world a friend pointed out Knoppix to me as an alternative to jumping straight into Debian or Slackware. took about 30min to download, and after then first failed burn about 40-60min to make a 2nd burn and try it out. what a nice feel, look, and ease of use. was also my first time on a KDE GUI as the only *nix i have so far is RH and just the default standard Gnome GUI. i have started caring the CD around with me so i can use it were ever i go to keep working on my *nix skills so i can learn this OS line as well as i know the M$ line. [edit to add] it does not like the ECS MB with USB, nor does it like to run higher then 1024 res with a GFx 5200 256M vid card. attempted to get it running on my worksation at my school (i own it), but sadly i use a trackball that is USB from Logitec and it does not play well with Linux, let alone Knoppix. so that would be a con, but i think that would just be my hardware more then this great OS/CD
