Default Linux LiveCDs

Hi,

I heard of those Linux LiveCDs. Does anyone have a list of available LiveCDs, and which one is the best / should I use?

I've just found this page called "The LiveCD List":

There seem to be quite a lot of live CDs out there...

Wow, lots of distros... Is there something like a "Swiss army knife", i.e., a live CD, that does whatever I need it to do (act as a rescue CD, start a full blown desktop when I want ot test Linux on new hardware, etc.)?

Well, I'd recommend Knoppix, though I don't know each of the other live CDs...

If you want to use Linux as a desktop system then you may want to try the Ubuntu Live CD.

http://se.releases.ubuntu.com/5.10/

Even cooler is that you can order for free the CDs home. Take about 2 weeks or something like that, depending on where you live.

ubuntu's live cd is nice for a first time user as a desktop and an idea of linux and to see if all works good on ya PC befor installing ubuntu.. but if you realy want that "Swiss army knife" in a live CD back/track is the distro for that
