I'm itching to make a VL6 LiveCD. I was on vacation for a few days and took along a VL 5.9 Standard LiveCD and a PCLinuxOS Live CD for when I was using my sister-in-law's computer. VL 5.9 Live did a great job of recognizing the laptop hardware and even set up the wireless Internet connection without any effort on my part. I just opened Firefox and went to my URL of choice.
Unfortunately, I was unable to control the touchpad with VL 5.9. I couldn't find any way to turn off Tap to Click, which I loathe beyond any possibility of describing. As a result, I was constantly fighting unwanted clicks--which I didn't click at all. Simply moving the cursor over things resulted in a click and an unwanted browser tab opening. PCLinuxOS was nearly as bad and I couldn't find a way to turn off tap to click. So my LiveCD experience was both great and wretched!
I loved VL 5.9 when I was using it last year, but VL6 is immensely better. I know that VL6 does include controls for touchpads (though I disable the touchpad entirely and use a notebook mouse). I look forward to having a VL6 LiveCD.
I wasn't impressed with PCLinuxOS. Fact is, I don't care much for anything but VL Standard and VL Light.<g> The less said about Ubuntu the better.
