I'm Downloading Knoppix 5.0.1 CD version right now and I'm so excited to try it out. Let me post some of the new goodies that comes with this new version of knoppix..

* V5.0.1-2006-06-01
- Current Debian/sid snapshot
- Kernel 2.6.17-rc*git*
- Removed XFree86 in favour of Xorg Version 7.0
- Detection of onboard IDE-Raid Controllers and raid disk components
- udev+hwsetup for automatic hardware detection
- OpenOffice 2.0.2 (german+english)
- Replaced Mozilla by Firefox+Thunderbird
- KDE 3.5.2 with HAL support for removable media
- Updated unionfs to 20060221
- cloop 2.04 with ringbuffer (performance)
- limited but safe transparent write access for NTFS partitions (libntfs+fuse)
- new knoppix-installer now also with the possibility to update existing installations of Knoppix
- [DVD] Gnome 2.12 update
- [CD] because of space reasons :-( , removed chromium, enigma, KDE-helpfiles, ruby, bison and some
other development-related packages (we still have JAVA and C/C++, Perl, Python and PHP on the CD, in
order to have an easy to set up LAMP system).

I have been waiting for this for so long and now its here... now if only I can boost by Bt download speed to 700mb per second that would make it perfect.
