Win98, 98SE, ME, NT, 2000, Linux Mandrake, XP... now Knoppix.
I' m testing it with a boot CD (version 4.0). Not so bad... It' s a funny thing to be able to communicate here with something else than Windows (Didn' t touch Linux since at least 2 years).
Tell me, I need some advices.
I would like to test some other versions of Linux on Boot CDs too. Which one and where, good or not, etc...

Windows Vista is coming... but I won' t take the " boat".
Sincerely, thank you!

In reply to: RE:

OpenSUSE is my first choice (I'm downloading the DVD version; 2 or 3 days needed for sure).
And Linspire looks like a very interesting alternative. I'll keep an eye on it. The price is not a problem (compared to Windows), but I need more informations before buying.

Thank you for your suggestions!
