    I'm just looking for some input.
    I know everyone likes Knoppix.

    I want to use Linux Live CD on campus at various computer labs and laptops. KU
    Also needing good auto network recognition especially since for laptops it nice to use wireless access points provided on campus.


    Also word processing, e-mail and html editing packages would be great.
    Blogger support in Firefox would rock too!
    Thanks

    What does everyone like to use?
    Thanks

    I suggest the Ubuntu "Hoary" LiveCD. Tried it a few weeks ago, and it had the most pleasant out-of-the-box experience I have ever seen from a Linux distro. Of course, a lot of it depends on the machine's hardware configuration, so your mileage may vary.

    Have only tried a few but knoppix gets my vote as "best". If you know what your doing or have the time to read up you can always make your own "live cd" from most of the live cd distro sites I believe.
