Linux: It’s Not Just for Servers Anymore

Wired gives credit to LiveCDs for the rise in the popularity of Linux desktop computing.

Part of this growth can be chalked up to the trend of the LiveCD, a bootable disk image that users can download and burn to a CD to test the software. Most of the popular Linux makers release software on LiveCDs, and many also ship physical CDs to curious users anywhere in the world for free or for a nominal fee.

  1. LiveCDs are the ideal way to test and install Linux. Boot ’em, run ’em, then install while surfing for any additional info you might need.

    BTW, how about a review of the latest Sidux? Kanotix is dead, but the superior Sidux lives on!!
