Effective immediately, the new release of Ubuntu, 17.10, aka 'Artful Aardvark' has been released!
This release will be supported for 9 months (until 2018) for Long Term Support, stick with release 16.04, instead.
Official flavors (e.g. Kubuntu) are also released.
See the above release notes for a full list of changes and where you can get a copy.
[Full disclosure: the majority of SoylentNews' servers run Ubuntu 16.04 LTS though we have taken steps towards moving to Gentoo.]
The customized version of GNOME that Ubuntu 17.10 uses is very much in the mould of the (now defunct) Unity desktop, so it won't be to everyone's tastes.
As I recall, that wasn't a Live CD (where everything would run from the plastic disk).You had to install it to give it a try. 8-(
...and ntfs-3g wasn't working until 2007, so, on an eXPee/NTFS box, you'd have to make a FAT32 partition to use a file with both Windoze and Linux.
What was especially nice about Corel Linux?

It was auto-magical: everything worked out of the box for me. No messing with config files, was pretty.
Basically, the Ubuntu of back then.
It was scary enough for MS to shut it down.
Just....memories, basically. Great memories. And Canadian!
