Knoppix or Gnoppix

Live CD Linux

I have just found this brilliant iso called Knoppix which is a Linux distribution that boots from a CD! Cool, huh? That means I can test my machine and see whether the hardware is detected, format the hard disks without having to install Windows and generally have a fun time 🙂

I have tried it on both Laptops and they boot well. It does, however, use the KDE desktop which is similar but most definitely not te same to the GNOME desktop that Ubuntu uses. I have also found Gnoppix, which does the same thing but uses the GNOME desktop. Currently downloading and will let you know how that works later.
