KNOPPIX 8.1

KNOPPIX is a bootable DVD with a col­lec­tion of GNU/Linux soft­ware, au­to­matic hard­ware de­tec­tion, and sup­port for many graph­ics cards, sound cards, SCSI and USB de­vices, as well as other pe­riph­er­als. KNOPPIX can be used as a Linux demo, an ed­u­ca­tional DVD, a res­cue sys­tem, or adapted as a plat­form for com­mer­cial soft­ware prod­uct demos. Although KNOPPIX is pri­mar­ily de­signed to be used as a live DVD, it can even be in­stalled on a hard disk like a typ­i­cal op­er­at­ing sys­tems. It also works as a re­source tool­kit for sys­tem ad­min­is­tra­tors.

The lat­est re­lease comes with UEFI se­cure boot sup­port. The BFQ (Bud­get Fair Queue Sched­uler) has been now in­cluded in the stan­dard ker­nel within the multi-path sched­uler, au­to­mat­i­cally ac­ti­vated for slow disks. Other high­lights are Li­breOf­fice
