Robert Scoble and Dave Winer both muse on SL as OS.  Interesting because there’s been a real push within LL to bundle the Linux build up with a bootable CD of Debian for the academics.

  1. May I suggest using USB thumbdrives over CD’s? Given that there’s a new SL client almost weekly, an academic would burn through an awful lot of discs with a SLive Linux distro.

  2. Thumbdrives would be another option, sure.

    Might also suggest creating a VMWare image, if the performance is decent. Means no rebooting and they can take notes in their normal tools alongside the SL experience.

    Actually, CD would be better. There are still BIOS’es that don’t boot USB keys, and some USB keys aren’t showing themselves as HD’s (more like hoooooooooooge floppies). Plus, alot of the basic textures can be cached on the CD, speeding up bandwidth (because come on, the library textures are always there).

    Worth remastering a Knoppix CD.
