I have no problem with Debian derived distributions and I'm sure people
who are doing this have thought about it. But currently Debian is missing
something: We have no brain dead method to create a user customized CD
with really good auto detection. IMHO, Knoppix and its derivatives might
fill this gap. That's why my idea was to reintegrate Knoppix but I would
have no problem if somebody would like to do it from scratch.
The popularity of Knoppix speaks for what users really like. The fact that
there are so many Knoppix derivatives speaks for the need of customizing
a live CD which is currently not as easy as users might deserve it.
