Specifications
KNOPPIX is a bootable Live system on CD or DVD, consisting of a representative collection of GNU/Linux software, automatic hardware detection, and support for many graphics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB devices and other peripherals. KNOPPIX can be used as a productive Linux system for the desktop, educational CD, rescue system, or adapted and used as a platform for commercial software product demos. It is not necessary to install anything on a hard disk. Due to on-the-fly decompression, the CD can have up to 2 GB of executable software installed on it (over 8GB on the DVD "Maxi" edition).

The GUI in Knoppix was good, but that was really all that I liked about it. I had Knoppix installed on a thumb drive, and used it on a number of computers. On each computer (desktops, laptops, and netbooks), Knoppix did not detect the mouse/touchpad for the computer that I was using. Also, Knoppix did not pick up any of the NIC cards for the computers that I used, so no Internet (wired and wireless). This became very frustrating after a while, so I replaced Knoppix with TinyMe.
