I came across a new LiveCD called PCLinuxOS 2k4 ... It is a live CD that is based on Mandrake 9.2. It is slow (as all CD Based distros are), but what I like about it is that it has a very complete install because it is a compressed disc that uncompresses the files on the fly. This allows 2gb of data on the disc.

The distro includes X server, KDE 3.1.4, Gnome 2.4 and Fluxbox, and large packages like OpenOffice 1.1 final and Mozilla 1.6 plus plugins.

It is beta software ... especially the install to hard drive ... but it is a very good and full featured demo to show your friends.
