Linux as a PC Screensaver?

Chris Ward, a software engineer for IBM, has a page detailing his efforts to create a Linux Live-CD Like *nix distribution that will run as a screensaver within a PC environment. He covers the tech details of making it work but as important discusses his reasoning and objectives. Great read… implementation is not for the light at heart.

“Construct and package a Linux® LiveCD so that it will install using the standard Microsoft® Windows® install process and will operate as a standard Windows screensaver. Answering the most common concern about open source software, this article shows that, yes, Linux will run under Windows.”
