Want to Try Linux?

Want to, but too scared/lazy? Then live CDs are perfect for you. You just put them in and reboot and, voila, a perfect install. Try it out, see if you like it, but pop the CD out and reboot and you're back to normal because it never installed to the hard disk. Lots of distributions do them, but I just heard of a clever one from Puppy Linux that uses a multisession CDR to allow you to actually save data about the session when you shut down (shame about the god-awful logo though). This is weird, because it;s kind of like a mobile computer, with your own session of linux on it. I'm sure this has some cool uses, but it's too late at night to think of them.
