Re: OVC Demo packaging task ready for test

Hello Fred:

That's very good news. I want to thank everyone that's been involved in
this important effort. However, I don't think people that aren't subscribed
to the developer list (such as yours truly) can actually respond. Also, as
I've mentioned before, I'd actually like this in a .iso version combined
with Knoppix, Slackware or some other memory only version of Linux. I want
to drop in a CD, boot my laptop and have it come up ready to demonstrate. I
would imagine that you would like to have folks try out this software before
taking that step but I was wondering if you had a sense when something like
that might be available.

There are a couple of reasons why I make this request. First of all, I'm
not really comfortable with setting up a dual boot or something to run Linux
along with Windows. While I know that Linux is powerful, flexible and
extremely reliable I manage to get by with Windows both at home and at work.
Also, I understand the working program will run this way and it would make a
more realistic demonstration. Finally, it's an extremely powerful way to
show why the OVC developers prefer Linux. It really is astonishing to see
something like Knoppix install itself and boot up a computer with a fully
operational GUI.
