Re: Emacspeak 9.0
It's definately doable. I believe many distributions use
a live Linux file system on the cd during installation. One
problem is that not all PCs allow an OS to be booted
from the cd drive. Again, I think this is why many
Linux distributions come with a boot floppy.
As for it being useful - I'm not very good at these questions.
It seems to me that unless you are familiar with emacs, a trial run
with emacspeak might actually scare you off. Emacs does have
a fairly steep learning curve. I think it would be useful
for those who are technically-minded.
