I’ve decided I want to help people discover Linux by providing live mini-CDs, so I’m trying to decide which version would be best. I would have liked to use (K)Ubuntu, openSuSE or Mandriva, but live and mini are rather mutually exclusive with those distros.
So, I’m looking for advice on what Live Mini-CD distro would be the most user friendly. I’m aiming at the average Windows user, so it should have a smart DE with, at least, OpenOffice.org and the GIMP or similar, with some multimedia suport out of the box.
I know this might be asking a lot from a mini-CD but I put nothing past Linux developers. So, what provides these features with no need for user expertise?
