Phoronix: Knoppix 7.2 Released, Uses LXDE By Default
While there wasn't a public Knoppix 7.1 release beyond their annual Linux Magazine CeBIT edition, Knoppix 7.2 was released instead to all users. Knoppix 7.2 is based on Debian "Wheezy" with newer desktop packages from Debian/testing and Debian/unstable Jessie...
knoppix was the first linux distro I ever tried, and I think it really helped make live CDs what they are today, but I am honestly surprised it's still alive. I don't see many practical reasons to keep using it anymore, as there are plenty of live CD distros out there better for system repair or demoing open source software.
