Six Best Portable Operating Systems

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux doesn't require the kind of liposuction required by the meatier 
| operating systems in the Hive Five in order to fit into a nice portable 
| package. Weighing in at under 100MB, it can easily be loaded on everything 
| from a CD to a USB drive with little fuss. The user interface is friendly 
| even for a non-Linux user, and the basic tools you need for popular portable 
| operations like partitioning and file recovery are readily available—although 
| it's just as great for web browsing and basic computing. We've already taken 
| Puppy Linux for a walk, so check it out if you want a closer look at this 
| friendly portable OS.        



Portable Linux future using LLVM

| Imagine a single Linux distribution that adapts to whatever hardware you run
| it on. When run on an Atom netbook, all the software shapes and optimizes to
| the feature set and processor characteristics of the specific version of
| Atom. Want to run it as a VM on a new Nehalem-based server? No problem, it
| re-shapes to fit the Nehalem (Core i7) architecture. And here, when I
| say "re-shape", I don't mean at the GUI level. Rather, I mean the software is
| effectively re-targeted for your processor's architecture, like it had been
| re-compiled.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
