[News] Knoppix 6.0 Works Well on Sub-notebooks

Knoppix 6.0: Perfect Distro (also for Netbooks)

,----[ Quote ]
| Knoppix has always been regarded as one of the most versatile Linux distros 
| out there, but the latest version of the venerable Live CD Linux distribution 
| has got yet another trick up its sleeve. Thanks to its excellent hardware 
| detection, blazingly fast boot process, and the lightweight LXDE desktop 
| environment, Knoppix 6.0 makes a perfect distro for netbooks. In fact, it 
| supports all hardware on ASUS Eee PC 701 and 900 as well as Acer Aspire One 
| right out of the box, including the wireless card. That's right, you don't 
| have to fiddle with ndiswrapper or install a custom kernel in order to make 
| your wireless card work. Knoppix 6.0 also detects the graphics card 
| correctly, chooses the proper screen resolution, and enables Compiz Fusion 3D 
| desktop effects. Even with 3D desktop effects enabled, the system feels very 
| snappy.            
| [...]
| All in all, even though the latest version of Knoppix isn't designed 
| specifically for netbooks, its netbook hardware support is excellent and the 
| system runs smoothly even on the original ASUS Eee PC 701. The distro comes 
| with key applications which can help you to stay productive when you are out 
| and about. So if you are looking for a replacement for the distro that comes 
| with your netbook, or you want to try something different, Knoppix 6.0 is 
| definitely worth a closer look.       



Knoppix - Linux 6.0 review

| A very well thought through distro that's just the kind of OS you want at
| hand when problems arise. There's a lot more to than simple recovery tools,
| too, and it's a useful disc to have around when you just want to get some
| work done without fuss or hassle.

Knoppix: live CD par excellence

,----[ Quote ]
| Knoppix is another classic example of the innovation that can come about when
| good code is avaiable under user-friendly licences like the GPL.


Knoppix 6.0 released

,----[ Quote ]
| Knoppix 6.0 has now been released with several new features and updates. The
| last update to Knoppix was in March of 2008 with version 5.3.1. Knoppix is a
| bootable CD distribution of Linux that incorperates automatic hardware
| detection. The CD can be used to demo Linux, as an educational CD, a rescue
| system, etc. It uses on-the-fly decompression so it can have up to 2 GB of
| data and software installed on it.


Knoppix 5.3.1

,----[ Quote ]
| At the recent CeBIT computer fair, Klaus Knopper finally released a new
| version of his popular Knoppix live-CD/DVD variety of GNU/Linux. The initial
| version was fine for the CeBIT crowd but had some problems, the most obvious
| of which was a mixture of languages in menus if you booted with the
| parameter "lang=" (by the way, it is now "lang=us" rather than "lang=en";
| this will take getting used to after many years of using "lang=en".)    


First Look: KNOPPIX 5.3.0 - At CeBIT 2008!

| Knoppix 5.3, after pausing for a year, was presented at CeBIT, in Hannover,
| Germany. Our colleagues were there, and got the DVD live-edition that's
| available with the German c't magazine during the event. The Open Source
| Audio-Desktop ADRIANE – which is a part of the live distro – was presented by
| Adriane and Klaus Knopper at CeBIT.



Who needs Windows Vista when you can have Knoppix 5.1.1 Live DVD?

,----[ Quote ]
| Well, in the first place there is no comparison between the two.
| In fact, there can't be any. Why? Simply because, Windows Vista
| is plain Operating system, with very little bundled apps. Whereas,
| Knoppix is complete Operating System bundled with hundreds of
| software that ranges from games to office!
| When you install Windows Vista (it requires whopping 6.7GB hard
| disk space at a bare minimum!), what you will get is - much hyped
| 3D aqua Desktop, a so-called secure operating system that bugs you
| to hell - by asking for every stupid task to Continue. In addition
| to that, It had about a dozen utilities such as paint, notepad,
| wordpad and a few games.
