    About OSGeo-Live

OSGeo-Live is a self-contained bootable DVD, USB flash drive and Virtual 
Machine based upon Ubuntu Linux that is pre-configured with a wide 
variety of robust open source geospatial software. The applications can 
be trialled without installing anything on your computer, simply by 
booting the computer from the DVD or USB drive. The lightening overview 
introduces all these applications, and hence provides a comprehensive 
introduction to the breadth of Geospatial Open Source.
