[GR] I got to know and love Blackbox & Fluxbox using a live CD. I kept
in mind the limitations of a CD and didn't expect blazing speeds, so I
wasn't disappointed. I'd recommend Knoppix to anyone who wants to try a
Windows alternative, but isn't sure what he/she can do with Linux. I'd
also recommend the Freesbie live CD, it's a good one for learning about
Unix and its directory arrangement, for example. I think live CDs are
way cool. I wish they made an OS/2 Warp 4 live CD, I'd love to try that.
