My Favorite 5 Live Linux Distros

Filed under
Linux

* Kubuntu- The Ubuntu family are becoming the go to Distro for Linux Novices. With a slick user interface, a wide variety of apps, and a decent installation process, Kubunu would have been my favorite had it actually worked on my machine. Although I had it installed on my Daughter’s laptop, it froze up on mine every time, resenting me with a black screen while the CD happily spun away for eternity everytime.

* SLAX Kill Bill Edition- The first Live CD I had that ran perfectly. Kill Bill has both Wine and Qemu to try to get the Windows programs that you probably already use running. That, and the awesome yellow screen make it worth checking out.( Note:The SLAX homepage is down while SLAX 6 is being added to the site. Download Kill Bill here.)
