openSUSE 12.1 KDE3 Live CD 0.1.1

An open-source and special openSUSE Live operating system designed for KDE 3 nostalgics
openSUSE 12.1 KDE3 Live CD is a free and open source distribution of Linux that provides users with a preconfigured KDE 3 graphical desktop environment on top of a stable and installable openSUSE base.

It’s distributed as 32-bit/64-bit Live CDs

As 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 drives

Keep 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 Linux

Being 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 user

As 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.

The software selection is great, includes only KDE-specific apps

Currently, openSUSE 12.1 KDE3 Live CD includes only KDE-specific applications, among which we can metion the Kaffeine video player, KAudioCreator Audio-CD ripper, KPDF document viewer, Mozilla Firefox and Konqueror web browsers, KTorrent BitTorrent client, Kopete multi-protocol instant messenger, as well as Mozilla Thunder email and news client. As a bonus, the LibreOffice office suite is also included.
