SuSE, openSUSE "The live version of openSUSE 10.3 is now available as a GNOME or KDE CD. Both contain the same software as the 1 CD installation versions would provide you with, but as a live version. The live system can be used as a productive system or rescue system. You can also use it to just check out how openSUSE 10.3 runs on your computer without touching your hard drive. The Live CDs are available as 32bit versions in US English only and also contain, for the first time, an install option on the desktop."

Yes, people finally got a live-CD with install option. But, compared to other distros, they are quite late shipping a live-installer. I wonder why? Mandriva has had this option for quite some time now. Later, Ubuntu also had this option and Knoppix had an installer for many years (although it is not designed as an "hd-install-distro" by default). I always have the feeling that Suse is lagging in terms of innovation, but maybe that is just me. (I also find Mandrivas Control Center to be way better than Suses Yast, but different tastes, different approaches. ;) )
