excellent news!
As an occasional knoppix user, i did have issues with there hardware detection and the hard disk installation was a nightmare for my laptop, but all said and done it is a decent linux disto.
I hope to get my hands on a copy of the new Koppix and see just how well the live updates are, it would be nice to have updates once and a while without having to do them all myself half the reason i got into computers is because for the most part i can be pretty lazy when it comes to technology (the other half is i'm irritated by software that doens't do what it's supposed to)
