    Bootable Live CD based on Linux

SystemRescueCd is a Linux system rescue disk available as a bootable CD-ROM or USB stick for administrating or repairing your system and data after a crash. It aims to provide an easy way to carry out admin tasks on your computer, such as creating and editing the hard disk partitions. It comes with a lot of linux software such as system tools (parted, partimage, fstools, ...) and basic tools (editors, midnight commander, network tools). It requires no installation. It can be used on linux servers, linux desktops or windows boxes. The kernel supports the important file systems (ext2/ext3/ext4, reiserfs, reiser4, btrfs, xfs, jfs, vfat, ntfs, iso9660), as well as network filesystems (samba and nfs). More Info »

A good Live CD. It has everything you need from the command line to mount/unmount and encrypt/decrypt hard disk and USB partitions. Even has gparted for changing disk partitions and formating. I even was able to mount by bluray USB optical drive and make a backup image of my harddisk partition. Granted the command line for doing that is cryptic, but nonetheless, This cd had everything i needed out of the box for doing that and it fits entirely on a CD-ROM making for a fast download.

I even use it as crude word processor by opening files in a text editor when i fear that my computer has been compromised with viruses, then save them on luks encrypted partition that is easily mounted and unmounted from the command line.
