True. But KNOPPIX is very similar in that the live CD is installable.

Additionally, do not try to resize a partition that may be mounted. The
live CDs like to use a local swap partition if one is allocated on the
HD. This certainly won't be the case on a pure Windows system. However,
you can use the swapoff command from the command line.
