I glanced at that this morning when I saw it on Slashdot. Apparently
it's not a live CD in the sense of Knoppix/Morphix/etc. (boot from CD
and have live environment) but instead you put the CD in a CD/DVD drive
of a computer already running Windows and you have instant access to X
capabilities without installing Cygwin.
I imagine it would be useful in an environment where you can't (or don't
want to) install Cygwin but I think I'd prefer a full blown Cygwin
install so I could benefit from the full Cygwin suite.
