Bluewhite Linux 13.0 LiveDVD
The "LiveDVD" version of Bluewhite Linux is a DVD which contain a bootable operating system. Live DVDs are unique in that they have the ability to run a complete, modern operating system on a computer lacking mutable secondary storage, such as a hard disk drive. The term "live" derives from the fact that these CDs each contain a complete, functioning and operational operating system on the distribution medium.
