Best of 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| Best distro release: Knoppix 6.x
| After a long hiatus, the venerable Live CD 
| Linux distribution emerged in a new version 
| redesigned from the ground up. The latest 
| version sports a brand new accelerated boot 
| procedure which significantly reduces the boot 
| time, and the LXDE lightweight graphical 
| desktop environment. Unlike previous versions, 
| Knoppix 6.0 comes with a trimmed software 
| bundle, but key productivity applications like 
| OpenOffice.org, Iceweasel (aka Firefox), 
| Icedove (aka Thunderbird), Pidgin, and the GIMP 
| are still there. The latest version of Knoppix 
| features a new flash-knoppix tool that allows 
| you to install Knoppix on a USB stick or a 
| flash card.
