Livecd is on the way out, boot from USB flash? Knoppix talking phone?

Knoppix got me interested in Linux, but that was the days of cdrom. Now cdrom or dvdrom is left out of laptops in favor of USB flash, Knoppix went talking too.

The technology of computer is going simplicity using phones.

Knoppix has not change to phones with simple operating system(connecting to teleco then do speed dial for webpages).

So, I do not compare Austrumi(multilingual) to Knoppix at all. But Knoppix talking can do it great on phones, which Knopper did not consider at all.

If Knopper reads this, maybe he will do some talking phones?

Talking as an input to select your webpages and tell you what is on the webpage would be nice if you are alone and private.

Its faster on a phone to your ear.

Right now knopper is doing only computer operating system. And liveUSB from livedvd. Desktop apps are in simpler graphics now from kde. What's next has not been revealed yet.

On the other hand, Knopper has not done browser operating system and speed dial to bigdata webpages through wifi remotely.

Remote wifi connection is mostly packet conversion to connect you from local business free wifi to your home cable router for recent information you are interested. Some servers from sling multistreamer can be an interesting use of remote download?

Technology keep on improving wifi system. Remote wifi connection is the latest.

Browser operating system is the only way to keep computers in use along with phones.

Austrumi multilongual operating system is only good for email.

But bigdata webpages are multilingual. So, Austrumi also will become obsoleted by higdata webpages of multilingual.

Technology and clever usage of technology is slowly moving from desktop to internet; then webpages of html5 took over the communications between people.

Knoppix 7.2 a livedvd that can do everything for you? Can be installed on liveUSB.

Which means you have to learn how to use it.

Puppy is a tiny distro, and it just runs the computer in a minimalistic way. Austrumi is multi lingual tiny distro.

Knoppix maybe trying too hard, and require learning how to use it.

Knoppix give away on magazine covers help popularity.

But their learning curve is too steep. to run it as a everyday operating system.

On the other hand, smartphones need no learning to operate them. The reason is speed dial to webpages.

Cost of smart phone and subscription fee is quite high. Wifi browser operating system is cheaper to own and get on the internet through cable wifi modem. Opera does offer speed dial to all your webpages. Eventuallu remote wifi will compete with smart phones.

Once puppy disro realize that, I am sure Barry will rework puppy distro to browser operating system for older laptops. Knoppix too.

In the mean time I have W2k working well with Firefox4. Or XP with Firefox4.

But using old laptop as smart phone can do text but need work to do voice.

The shake down of Slitaz two years ago, define the hardware so that the operating system will work as is.

Knoppix is now available with some need for learning as you go to install a full system.

There is a market for laptops to work as internet operating system to get bigdata summary of financial assets. Since the data is very short, 300 mgz cpu is good enough, and 486/586 is sufficient cpu as well as vga 791/792.

The important part is no fuss just worked for livedvd on used laptops bought from ebay without hdd.

Re: Livecd is on the way out, boot from USB flash? Knoppix talking phone?

Knoppix started with a small distro. Upon my suggestion went full version livedvd of over 5 gB.

It was a good effort and gained expertise on linux. Now for his wife, Knoppix talks.

The future however, I may suggest, is to be tiny and wifi on internet with webpage speed dial for older laptops and desktop computers(livecd). Europe will soon be up to technology of ARRS cable modem /G wifi speed.

Its time to go online and stop wasting time offline even on games. Angry birds on facebook?

If Knopper look at the number of pIII and P4 in use, he would make a livedvd for those computers. Many users still own those old computers, but new cpus are few today(too expensive).

CD or dvd has some problem picking up dust or oil from your hand, making them not working for long.

Hot water rinse can help then blot away the excess water. If aome water drops remain, they can ruin the drive temporarily not reading some line of codes on the cd or dvd until everything dries up.

USB is much better, except when you run into contact resistance on the connector. Petroleum jelly can prevent contact resistance issues, but its difficult to coat USB socket.

Still USB can be longer lasting then cd or dvd.

Knoppix talking linux operating system(now version 7.2) is missing an application for telemarketing.

There were a tape recorder telemarketing machine which can be programmed for selling merchandise such as music.

Verbal commands from answering person can trigger selling persuasion and generated a record of business transaction..

Linux is missing practical business application.

However like all open source linux distro, any software could be corrupted by new developers.
