    Is Knoppix V7.6 almost ready?

    Hi all,

    I have translated this with Google:
    On November 14, 2015 takes place at different locations in Germany, Austria and Switzerland held a Linux Presentation Day on which inform visitors on site about the possibilities and applications of the Open Source operating system GNU / Linux, and can even try it out live. On this occasion, one way or another edition of KNOPPIX 7.6 is offered at some locations, in-house by the organizers.

    So.. should we expect Knoppix 7.6 to be available soon for download?

    Rares

    You translated an announcement made in KNOPPIX.NET-News (German edition). You could have found it in English in the English edition.

    So it must true that a new Knoppix version is close to being born.

    What happened to Knoppix 7.5? Did the dog eat it?

    According to the Knoppix home page, 7.4.2 is still the current version. And if recent history repeats, a first peek at the new version in November means no download version before Spring or Summer of 2016.

    Typically Klaus does some trade show releases that he chooses to not release to the Internet. People sometimes go behind his back and extract the ISO from the disc and release it, but I feel that rather disrespects the author. As for the 7.6 release, Klaus' typical response to this type of question is that it will be released when he is ready.

    Verifying of md5 checksum and burning a CD at slow speed are important.

    ...tell me where to get knoppix 7.6; free or otherwise.

    Tell me where to get knoppix 7.6; free or otherwise, and "the check is in the mail"; I got the knoppix 7.5 dvd at Linux Magazine web site and would be much more than delighted to order a new copy of knoppix 7.6 too! Love Knoppix!

    Same here!

    We'll release a beta version of our software for blind users at the end of October so if I could build it on 7.6 directly it could save time not to redoit in a couple of months.

    How did you do this, and how did you even find out about it? I just looked at the website and the issue in which 7.5 was included, and the only link I could see for the file gave the following display:

    Die von Ihnen angegebene Seite /knoppix/knoppix750.html wurde nicht gefunden.
    The specified page /knoppix/knoppix750.html could not be found.

    BTW - I hate using paypal for anything. Have you ever read their terms and conditions or read any user
    reviews concerning customer service for billing and other accounting problems?

    Don't care for google apps either. I've only ever used one, for my tablet. The tablet reset without my intervention, and the app disappeared without a trace.

    Oh? Has Klaus been granted eternal good health by the gods of IT, or is it that he's been cloned?
