Knoppix or also known in big letters as KNOPPIX is basically designed to be used as a live CD or in simple words, as a bootable CD. It is an operating system built on Debian intended to be run or operated directly from a CD, DVD, or the thing you called “Live CD” as well as in a USB flash drive or the “Live USB”.

This is the first of its kind for an operating system. If you want to run a program, you need to load it in your CD/DVD drive or in the USB flash drive and it is then decompressed into a RAM drive. The process of decompression is transparent and instantaneous.

But even if it is designed as a Live CD, you can also install it on your hard drive like other normal operating system. Those computers that support booting from a USB device will be able to load it from a Live USB flash drive including memory card. There are two versions of Knoppix: the usual Compact Disc which is around 700 MB and the DVD “Maxi” edition which is 4.7 GB.

This is the typical Knoppix startup screen you see when booting the computer with Knoppix. See image.
