Knoppix - A great thing just keeps getting greater. #
It's hard to believe that it has been almost five years since Knoppix was first mentioned in this space. There has been an explosion of Live CDs since then, but Knoppix always manages to stay several steps ahead of the competition. Features I've recently noticed and appreciated:
- Wide RAID support (Why is Windows so far behind here?)
- Automatic mounting of external drives, even after booting
- Transparent read/write access for NTFS volumes
- This one's been around forever, but I love it: all drives are mounted as read-only, but can easily be made writable from the context (right click) menu.
