It’s distributed as 32-bit/64-bit Live CDsAs its name suggests, openSUSE 12.1 KDE3 Live CD is derived from the openSUSE 12.1 operating system, distributed as Live CD ISO images that have been engineered to support both 32-bit (i386) and 64-bit (x86_64) instruction set architectures.
The ISO images are hybrid, deployable on CD discs or USB drivesKeep in mind that you must burn the ISO image that corresponds to your computer’s architecture onto a blank CD disc or write on a USB flash drive in order to boot it from the BIOS of a PC.
Boot options à la openSUSE LinuxBeing based on openSUSE, the distribution features a boot menu that is identical in functionality with the one of the upstream operating system, allowing the user to start the live system in normal or failsafe mode, boot an existing OS from the first disk drive, as well as to perform a system memory diagnostic test.
KDE 3, the desktop environment for the nostalgic userAs mentioned, the main emphasis of openSUSE 12.1 KDE3 Live CD is on the KDE 3 graphical desktop environment, providing nostalgic users with a traditional interface that was extremely trendy a decade ago.
