Only a partial answer, though.  I've seen systems that won't work, at
all, with a live disc, but work fine with a normal install.  Someone
using the live disc as their first trial is going to give up.

And I've seen plenty of others where a live disc works horribly on a
system (tediously slow, minutes and minutes to boot, around a minute to
get an application to start up, etc.), yet a normal install works fine.

So it's important to say that a live disc tests whether a live disc
works on a system.
