As I wanted to give a look at LinuxMCE seen all the system potential, I could not make it through installation at this specific time due to Ubuntu 8.10 end of life.
Just to try LinuxMCE needs a full installation on a pc or a VM.
Wouldn't it be nice for newbies on LinuxMCE to be able to test it, see what it can do, check the look&feel, without having to delete a whole HD or knowing how VBox works?
And then once the hook is bitten, they can go for the install.
Greater would be to be able to save settings done so with the true install, they don't need to reconfigure the whole thing.
Is the liveCD technically possible?
PS: Proposed warning on the installation and/or background:
"This is a live presentation of LinuxMCE.
