Knoppix is based on a Debian unstable distribution, but includes some 
non-standard .deb packages. Knoppix can be updated to a nearly full Debian 
installation using "apt-get dist-upgrade".

In the same field, there is also a distribution called Morphix 
(, which shares code with Knoppix.

In my opinion, Morphix seems to be more interesting as their team works on 
various installation programs like:

- disk partitioner,
- installer to disk,
- GUI to create a distribution.
(some are only available in CVS)

Like Hiroshi wrote, many people are looking for a distro gathering all 
software needed to demonstrate, install and administrate PostgreSQL 

Looking at Morphix, sometimes I am not sure that PostgreSQL really needs a 
Windows port. I really don't know now. Before I used to "know". Now, I know 
that I don't know.

Of course, on the short term, PostgreSQL needs a Windows port. A Windows port 
can multiply the number of users by five immediately. 

But on the long run, maybe 10 years, MS Windows will simply disappear. The 
advance of GNU/Linux is now like an exponential curve.

Even my neighbours, who are 50 years old, look at Morphix and Synaptic and say 
"Whaooo, please install them".
