"the heathen", I love it!
I must say that I've done quite a few demo's with Knoppix when folks
pop in and ask, "Hey, what are you using there?". I also get
questions when I pull my laptop out of my bag, open the lid and start
typing within a few seconds.
And, my "magic box" has proven successful in far more situations for
me than for my MS-toting peers.
