LiveDistro List

Easiest way to begin with Linux based systems is using a Live CD or Live USB distribution.

LiveDistro is a generic term for an operating system distribution that is executed upon boot, without previous installation on a hard drive. In fact, a hard drive is not needed at all.

What in other distros would be stored in hard disk, is stored in RAM memory. That cuts down on the RAM available to applications, reducing performance somewhat. (Is recommended a minimum of 256 MB RAM)

For a list of LiveDistros you can search at:

I have tested Ubuntu and Knoppix.
