Dyn:bolic is a Live CD, which for those unfamiliar with the term, means you don't install it, on your system, you boot up using the CD and run everything directly from the disc, without ever installing anything. what's interesting is that this is not a standard general Linux distro. The entire point of this Live CD is the creation, and distribution of digital art. It is set up with some of the best tools avlible for creating, broadcasting, and publishing Music, Video's and graphics. And seeing you don't need to install it, or replace your current OS, it is worth a definite look.
