I agree too! Just a subdir 'Linux' on a FAT containing your custom apps. I'm
using the Opera web browser in this way.

...or...get rid of 'm both...Every distribution has to make decisions..
might not be a bad idea to just include one nice/functional window manager.
If you want custom linux, install your own Debian!

Yes, this too.. If knoppix itself would be really small + a script to
install any apps you want, that would be 'perfection' :-)

Well, I am too.. But all these requests of people "can you put xx on it?
it's lovely"..
Knoppix has ~2Gb to fill, and it's amazing how linux absorbs all this space
with the ease of Windows... Whatever happened to 1Gb linux partitions, you
need at least 3Gb nowadays..
