Are you a windows user that wants to start fooling around with linux? I know a lot of people who are. But theres a few reasons why they aren't in linux learning.
The Windows user is afraid that partitioning his/her hard drive is going to screw something up. Maybe, they are afraid of "screwing up there windows."
Well, I would like to introduce a product for those people! Its called Knoppix, and its a Linux Live-CD. Meaning, download this one cd, burn it, and restart your computer with it in the drive. Boom! A full blown Linux system with KDE, GNOME, OpenOffice.Org, Mozilla, etc appear on the screen!
Most importantly, its not just for newbies! A great use is putting it on some old computer and running an apache web server!
