[News] Ubuntu GNU/Linux Runs From USB Drive

Hash: SHA1

Ubuntu's Live USB Disk Creator

,----[ Quote ]
| Ubuntu 8.10 is shipping next week with a horde of updated packages including 
| the Linux 2.6.27 kernel, X.Org 7.4, Pidgin 2.5, GIMP 2.6, and many other 
| packages that have experienced significant milestones since the April release 
| of Ubuntu 8.04. On top of these updated packages from the community, 
| Canonical has been working on a few desktop Linux innovations of their own. 
| For instance, arriving late into the Intrepid Ibex release cycle is a USB 
| start-up disk creator. In this article we are providing a quick look at this 
| utility to easily spin your own USB disk images.       


Following Fedora's footsteps.


Fedora on a stick

| Fedora 9 now lets you create a bootable Linux distribution on a flash drive
| with persistence. In other words, you can not only boot any PC that will
| accept USB drive booting into Linux, you can even boot into your own personal
| desktop. Now, that can be useful.


Fedora 9 Puts Your Desktop on a USB Drive

| Turning a live CD ISO into a bootable USB image has been possible for some
| time now, but it usually involves some heavy lifting with the command line,
| and almost always in Linux. Fedora's liveusb-creator program makes USB
| imaging dead simple, and the Fedora distribution itself has a lot going for
| it. The latest "community" version of Red Hat's Linux package benefits from
| the same updates to the GNOME desktop that Ubuntu's Hardy Heron includes, and
| KDE fans get a pretty full-featured version that runs on the customizable KDE
| 4.


Fedora 9 tools demystify installation and upgrades

,----[ Quote ]
| The Fedora project has always offered installation options. The best known of
| these options are the Fedora spins -- roll-your-own install images that
| emphasize a particular desktop or purpose, such as providing the
| distribution's complete repository on DVD. With Fedora 9, the project has
| expanded its traditional emphasis with two new tools: LiveUSB Creator, a
| Windows application for producing live Fedora flash drives, and PreUpgrade, a
| wizard to help existing users move from one release to another. Each in its
| own way helps to clarify part of the process of installing the Fedora
| operating system.



Fedora 8 renews tradition of innovations

,----[ Quote ]
| This release makes it obvious that the Fedora community prides itself on 
| innovation.  

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
