KNOPPIX 6.7.0 Delivers a Few Surprises

Filed under
Linux

Once upon a time KNOPPIX was the king of hardware detection and an innovator in live CD technology. Well, time passed and more distribution developers began concentrating on live images and pretty soon remaster applications let anybody with an idea release their own Linux distribution. The Linux kernel itself took most of the hardware detection and configuration burden off developers. KNOPPIX then began declining in popularity and for a while seemed to be morphing into a specialty distribution. Well, I lost track of it about then and didn't think of it again until yesterday when I heard 6.7.0 was available. I figured I might take a look and see what it's been up to lately.

It's been quite a while since I last used KNOPPIX and a few things have changed. First thing that I noticed was how fast my copy booted.
