Yes I agree. Well done to everyone who was involved, it was excellent!

I think I can probably answer that one :) I have taken the 0.2 livecd offline 
because of the GPL violations due to the inclusion of pre-compiled nVidia and 
ATI non-GPL drivers. The demo cd you saw was a result of work until 2am last 
night, but 0.3 isn't quite ready yet. I hope to have it finished before I 
head overseas on Tuesday, so stay tuned. The install cds are for Kororaa 
2005, which is a binary install of Gentoo, not the livecd you are after.
