A LiveCD is a complete computer operating system which boots from a CD, without removing any operating system which might already be installed on the computer. Many versions of Linux are available in LiveCD format; some are written specifically (sometimes only) for LiveCD, often with the intention of addressing a specific purpose such as system repair or multimedia production.

Proprietary operating systems such as Windows and MacOS are generally not available on LiveCD.
