Fast Car Knoppix

Small can be beautiful! Working with Knoppix for the past two years has been a joy. Two terms to describe this distribution, simple, elegance. See Knoppix is one of the many operating systems that runs from the CD, so it doesn't have the hardware conflicts associated with many instruction sets between hardware and software.

When first installing it, I could see that it had potential. All of the install routines were smooth. Registers, ship sets, in sync recognition. When you test operating systems daily, you get a certain feel for what works. And then sometimes, the dreaded hiccup. Programs lost it's way. With Knoppix, no such encounters. Up pops the screen, elegance! Fonts rendered perfectly and clear. Remember, Knoppix is a total operating system on one 700mb CD, not a DVD. Clicked the menu button, small application city.

Small fast editors, check. Bash, check. Mozilla? She's there?What's the root file system looks like? Bin, boot, dev, lib, var. Thar she goes! Windows, click. So this is what all of the guys were talking about. Looks almost like the DOS files looked in MS 3.1. There's an .ini, .sys?Clicked on several other files and one file looked like ancient hieroglyphics. Leave that one for later study. All on one cd, and smooth. Enter into the foray of Linux. A vast surreal place of computer wizardry and magic. A place much unlike any other man has dreamed of. Why yarns an ago great mathematician spoke of such a coming together of the minds and forming a greater operating system. They talked of imaginings and terms of Euclidian?reality click! What was I talking about again?
