Description: Kanotix is a German distro that is of the Debian, Unstable, Knoppix vein. You just run the live cd, install right from the start menu, and your there. Unlike some of the big distros like SuSe and Fedora, it only requires the downloading of one cd. It is a light, KDE environment for server/ desktop use. I've found only one bug in it since switching from Fedora, and that is in the network card configuration. It won't let me enable at reboot. I must do it every time I boot.
Keywords: Kanotix, Debian, Knoppix

Pros: Live CD, Easy HD install, Fast, Good Default packaging
Cons: found a bug in usr/sbin/netcardconfig

It was easy to install. I keep the live cd around to play jokes on my Windows friends(boot from cd watch them freak out-LOL)It's a Debian product. It's got some great defaults and I was able to use wireless 802.11 g while in live cd. I may upgrade to kernel 2.16.18 so that would be the only reason I would uninstall this one.

Other distros used:
Suse 10.0, Fedora FC4, Damn Small, Slax, Ubuntu.
