I've heard of Quantian although I've never been on a system on which  
I can use it.  All the x86 boxes to which I have access do not have  
DVDs and Quantian will not run on my Mac, even under VPC.  That's why  
I prefer using Knoppix with a PDI on a USB stick or drive.  CD-ROMs  
and USB are just more common, which is important if I want to be  

How is Quantian?  Has anyone here used it or is using it?
