Linux Have you ever been in situations which made you think "I wish I had Linux running right now", or are you a person who just would like to try Linux quickly? Knoppix Linux might just be your thing!

I agree that the review does sell Knoppix a bit short especially failing to mention that it is a great "installable" Linux distribution( see previous post), but the fact that a 15 year old is "involved" needs to be celebrated while continuing to point out further details.
Merry Christmas

There are many people that use Linux and BSD-deriviatives who are still in school. Some of them run it 'to be cool' (like a few people I know.) Others run it becuase they need to brag about it. Others run it because they actually think it's superior. Some just run it becuase they have a ton of computers and want something to do with them. Hardcore IRC (Internet Relay Chat) users often install Linux so they can run 'shell servers', in which they sell or give away SSH access to their machine so people can run IRC severs or bots or access IRC via a bouncer (proxy). Others run it becuase people tell them to.
Out of the 100 people I know from school (including myself), 4 of them use Linux or a BSD-derivative - and I'd say about 10-20 of them have heard of Linux and know what it is.
