Knoppix - First glance

,----[ Quote ]
| I've only had it installed for about a half hour now, but it's pretty snappy
| on my old system and even has some good Compiz effects running. I also like
| that Iceweasle is the default browser.


The Reason Why I Loved Knoppix More Than Windows!

,----[ Quote ]
| Iâve been a Windows user since fourteen years ago, where the Window 95 was my
| first computer operating system. Honestly, I was overexcited, as I owned my
| first computer for the first time in life! I spent over 6 hours daily to
| learn how to use the computer. Well, in less than three days, Iâve mastered
| all the basic skills of the computer, including the Windows operating system
| as well!
| Time flies by, and the Microsoft Windows have been rapidly changed in the
| past fourteen years. Honestly, I tried every Windows version, from the
| Windows 1.01 to the latest Windows XP Professional x64 Edition. Frankly,
| Window Vista is the most terrible that ever released in all the Window
| versions! Iâve encountered many difficulties and I really losing my temper on
| this version.


Knoppix - Linux 6.0 review

,----[ Quote ]
| 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.
