I have a knoppix/quantian based live CD with pwscf installed, but I have
to say that although it is handy being able to run pwscf on any computer
without leaving a trace, it can sometimes be annoying when the CDrom keeps
spinning up to load programs like gawk or grep in script files.
Also, due to pwscfs reaonably high I/O requirements, and that knoppix type
CDs rely purely on ramdisks, that memory can run out quite quickly.
