    Greetings, buymystock .

    The CeBIT version of Knoppix usually appears in March or so,
    and is usually a feature of Linux Magazin in Europe or Linux Magazine in
    the US. These magazines cost about $10 and usually contain a DVD version of Knoppix.

    Some of us wait a few months for the 'Community Edition' which often
    corrects a few problems of the CeBIT version, and is free for the download.

    I've not bought Knoppix this way, but you might check out the following:

    To my knowledge, the only way to get an official copy of 7.3 is either with the March 2014 issue of Linux Magazine or by attending CBit. Best I can tell, the following link is to the page on Linux Magazine's website regarding the copy included with the magzine, but I have not been able to find any information on how to order a copy: http://www.linux-magazine.com/Issues...is-Month-s-DVD Though you would think someone with a copy would have made an iso and torrented it. The absence of public betas is one thing I miss from Ubuntu and vanilla Debian, but I am stuck with Knoppix since its Adriane variant appears to be the only well-known distro that is blind accessible out of the box.

    The CeBIT DVD is likely copyrighted and moreover likely contains additional material,
    beyond the Knoppix material,
    for which a DVD owner has no rights to distribute.

    I'm sure you mean well, Jeffery, but
    the suggestion for someone to torrent their copy is not well-advised IMO.

    Hi UTU,
    Thanks for the response; I have not bought Knoppix this way either. It's a very good marketing strategy for Linux Magazine to offer the 7.3 DVD with their sequential periodical. I'll take the option of waiting a few months for the 'Community Edition' because I like its subsequent edited version which often corrects a few problems that may be found in the earlier CeBIT edition. I appreciate your answer, UTU.
    Blessings

    Here's a new clue as to when the 'Community Edition' might be available:
    a French offer of Knoppix 7.3 with an offering date of May 31. Find this at:

    Greetings, UTU,
    I may send out for the DVD from the French company mentioned in your reply.
    It costs a little over $10.00 in United States Dollars (USD) currency. The link works for me. They give their complete mailing address for payment with 3 or 4 day waiting period for DVD to arrive after payment is received in their office. Much gratitude, "utu".
    Blessings

    Greetings, buymystock.

    I expect free downloads may be available on about this same time scale,
    unless Klaus K finds something he wants to correct first.

    I would love to meet Klaus K or get a personal email from him; he's awe-inspiring and incredible! Naturally, his operating systems are too! I have been fortunate enough to have discovered and practiced using his Knoppix OS since version 2.2, more than a decade ago; at that time, I quickly and successfully weaned myself off of microsoft's detritus rubbish.

    Not a real meeting with K. Knopper, but perhaps you would like to see him at CeBIT 2012
    http://www.techcast.com/events/cebit12/mi05/

    or at Cebit 2014 (German language only!)

    Hello again, buymystock.

    I'm also fond of both Klaus K and his Knoppix product.
    Your join date shows you've been at this longer than I have. Congratulations.

    My observation is that Klaus K does not frequent this forum, except rarely.
    He has not been very active even on his own forum lately, at least publicly,
    as you can see at:
    https://lists.debian.org/debian-knoppix/2014

    I think Klaus K does monitor his own forum, however, and will most likely respond
    to specific questions there, if the questions are reasonable and pertinent, and
    almost certainly if you've found a legitimate problem that needs his attention.

    Werner points out that Klaus K may be seen on some past CeBIT sessions giving
    lectures there in both English and German.
