    Yggdrasil Linux/GNU/X, or LGX ( I prefer the last two names coz the first one is kinda hard to pronounce… Wikipedia asked me to pronounce it igg-drah-sill)

    LGX was the first company to create a Live CD Linux distribution.

    The hint was Knoppix being a Live CD Linux Distribution!!

    Yggdrasil Linux was the first Live CD.

    Seeing the Knoppix logo, I thought the answer was to do with Adrianne Knoppix, Knoppix for the visually impaired.
