amoroK LiveCD

"there's a party in the CD"

"amaroK Live is a stripped down LiveCD (based on PCLinuxOS) with a fully functional amaroK music player bundled with the tracks commissioned last year by Wired Magazine, which are distributed under the Creative Commons Sampling Licenses. It includes - among other major artists - tracks by the Beastie Boys and David Byrne."

"Well, after 35 iso images, amaroK LiveCD version 1.2.1 looks done. I am doing some final testing but I should be able to get it distributed tomorrow. This has been quite an interesting project for me, mostly because it is the first contribution other than bug reporting and documentation I have made to an OSS project. I am not a coder, so the most I can usually contribute is bug testing, money and encouragement (complaints). I learned a lot, made some friends and had a lot of fun." Read more of this blog here.

Texstar is quoted as saying, "I think it's great that someone could take pclos as a base
and build a new livecd."
