Kanotix is a rock-solid Linux based on Debian GNU/Linux 6.0 'Squeeze', which contains the newest packages and recognizes more modern hardware than any other operating system in use today.
Kanotix will run as a LIVE-DVD on practically any computer -- automatically detecting and configuring virtually any piece of hardware. It is ideal for analysis, data rescue, forensic work, removal of viruses on Win-PCs - or simply for safe surfing and mailing in an internet cafe. It installs to your hard drive in just a few minutes and is ideal for use on your desktop workstation or notebook, or as a server.
Kanotix CeBIT Special 2013 Announcement
As a little surprise there is a new Kanotix ISO during CeBIT time (I am there as visitor) with some special features not found in normal releases. The main difference is that a newer libc6 2.17 is used (from Debian Experimental) which has the effect that self-compiled binaries can not be shared with Debian Wheezy users. If that does not affect you you can enjoy the new features:
Kernel 3.8.2 (Ubuntu 3.8.0-10 with one extra patch and SATA_AHCI static)
Nvidia 313.18 and Fglrx 13.2 Beta 7 available in gfxdetect mode (similar to Hellfire gfxoverlay) and the autodetection works after hd install in that mode as well
Mesa 9.1 for open source gfx drivers, best suited for Intel HD 2000+
Grub 2.00 (in case of UEFI boot requires primary mbr or gpt partition mounted to /boot/efi, can be shared with Win, use adv. partitioning)
The system can be used to try Steam and should work fine even from USB hd installs (create a bit ext4 partition for that). You could carry your games with you that way and the gfx driver is always correct on boot.
