    Free Data Recovery CD, Web Browser, Word Processor, Spreadsheet, plus much more!

    You techies probably know about this already but I am posting this for everyone. It my first Freebie so go easy!

    This program is completely free open source and can be downloaded. All you have to do is burn it to a cd and you have a complete operating system, browser, applications, tools that can be booted from a disk!

    If your PC fails and you can't access important data, just pop in the cd and it will start up your machine and you can copy your files over a network or to disk/USB drive. It can be used if you need to sit at a temporary machine for word processing, etc.

    Not sure how useful it may be for you but my pc crashed and used this disk to recover all my data before formatting my hard disk.

    Remember it's free! So how can it be voted cold?

    Knoppix, a Free and Open Source Live Linux CD. Knoppix is a GNU/Linux distribution that boots and runs completely from cd.

    I've followed the link through to the download page, but requires a payment of $49.95. :?

    Moved to misc, we generally do not allow downloads as freebies.

    You have clicked on the wrong link.

    On the main page, click on "GET KNOPPIX", you will be taken to another page. Click on "Mirror list on the official site" which is located between the two images/adverts.

    You will be presented with a new page listing all the mirror sites around the world that hold this program on their servers. Scroll down to the bottom and click on "[http]" next to "UK Mirror Service - University Of Kent (England)".

    On the next page click "Accept", select "knoppix 15-Feb-2008 " on the next page

    Scroll down and click on the folder image on the right hand side of "[archive] KNOPPIX_V5.1.0CD-2006-12-30-EN.iso 697.7M 30-Dec-2006 "

    Click "download ISO file"

    Save it to your computers and burn the iso file to a cd. You can burn a cd version or DVD version of knoppix.:thumbsup:

    Linux has always been open source, so it's no big deal really.
    I'd recommend Ubuntu Ultimate personally, great OS.

    Best recovery CD ive ever used is Ultimate Boot CD for Windows. (free)
