thats what the live iso does by default.
you can install it or just run it in live mode.
i guess this is just all about educating people how things work.
i guess i just saw one linux distro which had a separate live image 
without an installer.
but i guess that one also removed this demo iso and now just offers one 
for all.
btw i have 2 handy tech displays over here.
i tested sonar on the older one and it works fine.
