My +1 to Vimal.
A live CD/DVD is the best solution for testing Koha, leave a simple installation to new users for evaluation, and so on.

> Dear Friends,
> Live CD/DVDs are essential part of any Free software project.
> We can find that Live CD/DVDs are available in many popular Free software
> projects like Dspace and Eprints.
> Live CD/DVDs are easy to try and install for non techies. Manual
> installation of Koha is difficult process for most of library professionals.
> In the present situation, Koha project has not released official Live
> CD/DVD. It is high time to think about the development of an official live
> cd/dvd from Koha team.
> In my experience, popularity of Koha increased in India after the
> availability of live cd/dvd. Organising Koha workshops are now easy with
> Koha Live cd/dvd. Installation of Koha by participants in workshops ate
> good part of the time. Now participants can try Koha at home or workplace
> after the workshop without much effort.
> I had created a live cd and dvd based on Ubuntu 10.04 with the help of
> Remastersys.
> https://sourceforge.net/projects/kohalivecd-lite
> https://sourceforge.net/projects/kohalivedvd/
> But I could not develop a live cd based on Ubuntu 12.04 LTS due to its
> incompatibility with Remastersys.
> Lot of other live cd/dvds are available and useful for community; library
> professsionals, LIS teachers, students and research scholars.
> I request Koha community and developers should think about the release of
> official Koha Live CD/DVD.
> Then only we can achieve uniformity in Koha Live CD/DVD development and
> release.
> Regards,
