Games Knoppix

By on December 28, 2004

So, you’re telling me I just put this CD into the computer, reboot it, and I’m booted into an environment that’s got all sorts of games pre-installed and instantly ready to play? I am so there.

A distribution of Knoppix loaded with games has a bootable CD with 700 MB of open-source games, 3d support for NVIDIA, ATI, and Intel Extreme, gamepad support for XWindows.

The web site sucks, but I love the idea. A great way to have a bunch of games to play without crapping up your hard disk.
