Seen it but thanks for the suggestion. I spent quite a while looking
through various Linux Live CDs trying to find a Gnome one that I could
bring to GUADEC last summer. Gnoppix looked like a somewhat moribund
project at the time (and i was appalled by the butchering of Klaus
Knoppers name in what is probably the worst case of ridikulous gnaming
konventions I kan rekall. some KDE projects manage to choose sensible
name but it really makes my skin crawal even more when Gnome projects do
it and fail so badly).
Morphix seemed like and turned out to be a much better bet, but Knoppix
has always worked for me first time on much more hardware (in total about
10 different machines of friends and family or so over the past 4 years).
PS I may as well take this opportunity to thank those who made the ILUG
Linux Care Live CD which I tried and enjoyed so much and made me realise
the potential of these LiveCD distributions.
