I'm sure that Solaris and Mac OS can be set up to be as functional from
a boot CD as Knoppix. But, Solaris and Mac OS tend to run only on
machines that mostly have a sane OS on them (except for Solaris/x86, or
course), so what would be the point? With Knoppix, I can temporarily
convert a PC into something saner, that happens to be linux now.
Now, one could set up a special Solaris Boot CD to do the same for x86,
but a) I don't think you could redistribute it to people who want a
simple download and burn solution, and b) hardware compatibility is
likely to be a huge problem.
