A live bootable Linux CD especially created for Linux Audio use? WHat a
perfect idea! I'd love to be involved/informed. If you create a mailing
list please put me on it.

Imagine having this on your keychain on a USB thumb drive; plug it in to
a random PC, reboot, and there you are with a full audio studio.

Storing songs would be a bit of an issue, but even if it was for
demonstration purposes only it would be very well worth it.
