Don't call me silly, or I will have to work harder at perfecting my silly 

Knoppix is fine, no doubt, for those who are familiar with it. I did try it 
out, about ten years ago, when I was comparing Linux distros. I might check 
out the latest Knoppix live DVD, just to see what's in their toolset, but I 
doubt I would ever install it; so, in effect, it is still for me a 
single-purpose disc. 

It's a matter of what one is familiar with; your granddaddy is not mine. If I 
had infinite time, and infinitely many different computers, I would install 
and learn all the different distros. I just want something that works well, 
is GNU/Linux, free/libre, and secure. 

I don't like the SourceForge site, but it is a quick solution to my problem.
