There's no mention of it on the CD jacket.  On the 32 and 64 bit PC 
editions, the live CD contains Windows stuff.

Would anyone be comfortable bringing a laptop to use for a demo?  We 
would of course be very protective of it and never leave it unattended. 
  Even if we were to lug one of our boxes over, those things are pretty 
ancient - we'd look more like the computer history club.
