    Innovative Usage of Linux Live CD

    Hi all,

    I am collecting various Usage of Live CD for my study.

    Till now my research has listed following ways


    • Banks Providing Live CD with Browser Homepaged to Bank Website.
    • Internet Cafe's operating on Live CD,
    • To Setup Diskless dumb terminals / Thin clients booting on Live Disk for cheap workstation alternative. LTSP will be a good alternative
    • Ethical Hacking, penetration testing.
    • Un Ethical Hacking or Cracking.
    • Disaster Recovery.
    • Forensic evidence collection.
    • Testing any Distro before switching to it.
    • OS on the RUN (when using Live USB mode)
    • Portable Electronic Workbench. <- Preinstalled toolkit for electronics development.
    • Portable Testing Workbench. <- complete with software testing tools installed


    Please suggest any other usage of Live CD that you have in your mind.

    I always bring a custom built live cd to the data center when I have to work on servers.

    One of the servers is a "spare machine" and has a cd rom drive. This lets me boot into a familiar working environment when at the data center.

    OS on the RUN (when using Live USB mode)(or custom build)
    waiting for more options.....

    ohk so this i would classify as

    Backup, rescue and recovery of files from corrupt OS / Corrupt Partition / deleted
    files

    Another good one.
