After a number of years in development Linux Test Drive is becoming a reality, from the page:
LTD is a project that has been in development for the last three years. LTD allows the user to determine which distribution best fits their needs utilizing the Linux Distribution Chooser, and then once that is determined, give the user the ability to “test drive” that distribution directly over the Internet, without the need to download. We are currently taking pre-beta registrations for the LTD system.
We believe this project will have a huge and lasting impact on the adoption of the Linux Desktop.
Ruffdogs has contributed to a number of open source projects over the years and is ready to make the biggest impact yet. Please sign up for the early beta and help us tune this system that everybody will be talking about. And please take the time to tell others about it.
