How do I find a live linux distribution with a contain at least a specific set of software that I want?

If you might be wondering, I am trying to find a live linux distribution (can be live dvd or live cd or live usb) that contains veracrypt and libreoffice that is out of the box (without the need to install).

    While many distributions come with LibreOffice pre-installed, VeraCrypt is a somewhat more specific requirement and I am unsure if any of the wide-spread distributions come with it pre-installed. If you want to distribute such a distribution in your company or among friends and family, it is easy to build your own custom distribution from existing distributions with these two packages installed. Take a look at this article for example: linuxvoice.com/build-your-own-linux-distro Jun 5, 2017 at 10:40

You can view all distro GNU/Linux on http://www.distrowatch.com/.

Currently, I am usingGnu/Linux Fedora 25, which can be installed from a Live CD.

It has Libreoffice pre-installed, but you have to install veracrypt from this site https://fedora.pkgs.org/25/rpm-sphere/veracrypt-1.19-3.2.x86_64.rpm.html

    Hi Riccardo, in my question I mention without the need to install. Veracrypt should run just like Libreoffice.

You can always build your own LiveDVD - This is the instruction set that I've used before and it works well
