Comments: Linux evangelism opportunity from Microsoft worm/virus web woes

I'd recommend making building it around Knoppix - it's a fairly good CD-based Linux distribution that has fairly up-to-date software and is pretty good about figuring out hardware.

It's a good idea - but - the 2.4 Linux Kernel can't write to HPFS file systems. If they put a 2.6 kernel on it then that might work.

It's a nice idea but I suspect that Microsoft will be spurred on to release their security CD first. It's a little overdue now to say the least
