informIT has a good article today on "Live CD" Linux distributions. These distributions allow someone to burn themselves a bootable Linux CD. You stick the CD in your CD-ROM drive and boot into Linux, giving yourself a Linux test-drive without the hassle of making changes to your system.
Not only are these test drives, but usable Linux distributions, with applications and all. It may even be an alternative for some people who were considering making their Windows box into a dual-boot machine.
Check out the article, which contains plenty of detail, and reviews some of the different distributions.Posted by James at December 1, 2003 1:00 PM
