It is no longer true, I think. Hereis a snippet from http://tug.org/texlive:
can be run directly from the distribution media, or installed to
hard disk. (The DVD also includes the proTeXt Windows distribution,
MacTeX MacOSX distribution, and a snapshot of CTAN.
nearly all of the data is compressed, so it can only be installed,
not run live.
