Tux Millionaire

Taking a break from rewrites today, I read this story at a linux site I frequent for reviews and tutorials.


“Knoppix is a distribution of Linux, the open source operating system, that runs completely on a single CD, making no use of the hard drive. This is perfect for people like me, who have always wanted to try out Linux, but never could because they didn’t want to completely install a new operating system. This is my first time trying Linux, and my primary operating system is Windows XP. For me, Windows XP is fine. It does everything I need, which is mostly web development and regular computer usage, and is completely stable. However, after KDE 3.1 was released, I felt like I needed to try it out because it looked very nice. There was a problem however, Knoppix 3.1 contains KDE 3.0, which is not the latest version, so I decided to download a remastered version of the Knoppix distribution which contains KDE 3.1 from this site…”

If you’ve ever wondered about Linux, but you’ve been scared to death about doing the install, and dual-booting is something you think best reserved for a rodeo, you should check out Knoppix. It’s even cooler, now that they’ve got KDE 3.1.
I also had a submission accepted at FARK. Funtimes.
Update: Holy Jumpin’ Jesus! I got another accepted! That’s 2 in one day. Fb- is my father.

  1. Knoppix is amazing – I’ve run it on my laptop (sometimes a tricky thing with many distro’s), an old PI 166MHz Compaq and a new P4 desktop. It loads into an instant GUI, so an old guy like me who hasn’t used a command-line since Windows 3.1 can get right into discovering what Linux can do for me, rather than figuring out how to run the OS. It comes with a *load* of cool software, too.
    Maybe the coolest thing about Knoppix is that you can use it as an automated installer for Debian GNU/Linux, too. Autorecognition of all your hardware, so you can skip that nerve-wracking process.
    You just need to have the partitions set up first. Man, I suck with cfdisk.
    Thanks for spreading the word about this amazing work, Wil.
    Cheers!

  2. Hey Wil, quick question about the Rich F–king A–hole story: Why does a 13-year old (w/ younger brother) necessarily need a babysitter for one evening without the parents? Seems he’s at the age where he could look after himself and his little brother for a few hours without incident, no?

  3. If downloading the ISO is a bit much for you check out – http://floppix.ccai.com/
    It’s called Floppix, Linux on 2 floppy and it resides in your system memory. Same basis of what Wil posted just much much leaner. Something no doubt Dial-up users will appreciate.
    I used this program in college (one of my teachers there was the author of it) and loved it, you can break it til your hearts content and just reload it if you’ve completely screwed up ha ha…
    Hope that helps………
    Cheers,
    Mike

  4. I knew you couldn’t stay away for long Wil!! Hold your head up and keep on plugging. I think everyone that reads this site is rooting (sp) for you.

  5. I admit I know absolutly NOTHING about your last post, haha. I did want to say congrats on getting your last two submissions accepted. Secondly, I wanted to wish you and Anne a most faboulous Valintine’s Day!

  6. Linux is cool but the problem with Knoppix is that running from a CD is going to make it SEVERAL orders of magnitude slower than an OS running off a hard disk.That could leave a bad impression with possible Windows refugees, and hence be bad for Linux overall…

  7. I am writing this from my fresh copy of Knoppix 3.1 on my work laptop right now!!!! Downloaded in about an hour Zero set up time.
    Very Cool!!
    I’m such a geek.

  8. I’m glad that you like Knoppix. Any chance you could put a link on here instead of making me hunt it down? Thanks for the tip, though.
    And no, thanks, I’d prefer not to put my email address. You might also see how silly the comments window looks under Windows XP and IE 6.0.

  9. I grabbed a copy of Knoppix 3.1, 1-20-03. I’ve been a long time Debian user (3 years now). My main deb box is on the 2.4 kernel, but still has KDE 2.x.
    I’m really, really impressed by Knoppix. I’ve installed it on a Compaq EVO desktop machine, a Compaq EVO laptop and an IBM T20 laptop. It’s worked flawlessly each time. I’m listening to MP3’s, printing, surfin’ (obviously – I’m using Knoppix right now), etc. Easiest Linux “setup” I’ve ever done. I wish it was this easy to set up all distros – Linux would have a few more fans.

  10. Dual booting is something that happens when I go to the Fluevog store in CHGO…
    …I’m learning, though. Slowly, but I’m learning…
    I hope you don’t go away. I pop in from time to time but was planning on heading in much more frequently. I enjoy your writing and your perspective. I hope you find continued success!

  11. Fark seems to be down. At first I thought they had just deleted Wil’s submissions, as those were the links I was trying.
    Currently fark’s main page shows none of the submissions at all.
    They trashed the database again, I guess. (Dang it Drew, you screwed up that sql statement again!)

  12. Amigo- We were all the way out in Culver City (about 30 miles away), and knew there was a chance we’d be back as late as ten or ten thirty. We didn’t feel that it was responsible to leave them alone for that long with us that far away.
    Mucho thanks to everyone who has emailed and commented about the RFA’s. I can’t tell you how much that upset me, and how it ate at me for so long. It’s nice to know that I’m not the only person who has to deal with fuckers like them.

  13. Wil…I’m glad you brought up Knoppix. I downloaded it after watching you on The Screensavers when you were wearing THE SHIRT.
    I have a question for anybody that can help. My DSL connection has to be manually initiated with a username and password. But I just cannot seem to figure out how to make the DSL connection application work on Knoppix. Any solutions out there?
    Thanks!

  14. I hope this is not too off topic, but man, at work the computer guy set us up using two Linux programs, and it has been shit oh pardon me, shoot, but come on, this stuff is so inferior to Windows it is pathetic. Please think twice before you rebel…

  15. If anyone is interested in another no-install demo, Demolinux (http://www.demolinux.org/) is excellent.
    I got a copy free with a UK magazine called Linux Format (they have a sister(brother?) magazine called Mac Format for you OS-Xers)
    Anyway, big difference between Knoppix and DemoLinux is the ability to “anchor” the DemoLinux settings to your hard drive. Knoppix, as far as I know, only lets you save settings (hardware setup, desktop theme, email settings, etc…) to a floppy. Demoliunx lets you save them, along with your /home directory, to your hard drive. You can also install Demolinux by clicking an icon on the desktop.
    Man, sounds like I work for them?

    “But wil, open source scares me. My microsoft representative told me that linux was a tool of the devil. And you have to beleive him, he works at a computer store, y’know”
    ya did you say he is micro$oft rep cause he is looking out for microsoft so considering that linux is microsofts bigest competiter
    and until recently they no compation linux is open source xp $200 xp (xtra pee)
    linux a free os firefox a platform indepent browser that can do every ie can do dose no crash as often and dose not a back door for spyware “microsoft a wolf in sheeps clothing”
