Here is an improvements list concerning this idea:

  • find a better graphics for desktop background (if you will)

  • change the splash screen
  • Include a pre-indexed content
  • find a better graphics for login background (at least add the info about default username and password) (added autologin)
  • add a readme file on the desktop
  • Document the live CD creation process (doing on kiwix-live repo)
  • Be able to do the same but with a scriptable solution (done using Vagrant)
  • Remove the login windows
  • Remove all the unnecessary stuff/binaries from the CD (please list here: Live CD/Binaries to remove)
  • Launch automatically Kiwix in fullscreen at the start
