    Looks interesting enough, might try it during the week (when my DSL cap resets ). IT's nice that it's a livecd, always handy to have. That said a few things that would swing linux for me would be -
    • Software shown is available for if not designed for linux
    • IBM have announced that they are terminating support for OS/2
    • Far more software available for linux
    • Support from linux community is abound (like here )


    I have always liked OS2, and would certainly try an OS that comes on a live disc. Seems to me that at the moment linux has a far brighter future. And hey, Unix file structure versus DOS file structure? I guess we know who wins there

    Edit - Linux is open source, this demo requires you to send an email to request a download
