    KnoppixKDE (with KDE 3.1) is phenomenal - but it has some bugs (and misfeatures).

    Tear-off menus appear to be a thing of the past....

    KOrganizer appears to have several bugs; most memorable was the inability to delete ToDo items - there are three or four ways to do this, but only one works (delete key, I think it was).

    The text-based terminal displays never get rid of the graphical "frame" - cute during bootup, annoying otherwise - and worse yet, no text is visible unless it is displayed in ANSI bold.

    It was also quite surprising to find that ruby ( http://www.ruby-lang.org ) was not present, and neither was screen ( http://www.gnu.org/software/screen/ ). This combination (along with the invisible text on the virtual terminals) caused my startup scripts to fail (since they are Ruby-based) without any visible descriptions at all.

    Very nice, but not ready for prime time...

    PS: http://minicd.berlios.de doesn't seem to be responding... Last time I tried http://www.berlios.de it timed out too.

    I know that the KDE 3.1.1 is being worked on and it contains quite a bit of bug-fixes. On the bootsplash issue, I think that you should be able to set the color of the text, I seem to remember something like that in one of the forums...

    PPS: Yes, it seems that BerliOs are having some problems at this point. Do a traceroute and see. I would like to test the mini-cd version as well. AFAIK Mandrake backports quite a bit of fixes from the main tree, so KDE might be more usable/stable - but in my case I'm quite happy with KnoppixKDE. Then again, variety is the spice of life

    It seems to be back up again. So, yes, now you can try it
