Disadvantages

Just in case, my ALT Linux Rescue LiveCD is a part of regular builds project thus updates happen weekly; using current/unstable Sisyphus repository helps maintain recent kernel and baseline utilities (although special packages still might lack attention at times).

It doesn't tackle the "no simple way to reconfigure" as the packages get included as is -- so fixing those is the proposed way (but then again TSK is built with AFF support in ALT), and additional/updated packages can be installed in runtime too. --MShigorin (talk) 07:23, 23 April 2014 (CDT)
