Linux in a flash December 8, 2006

Posted by Al in : computers , trackback

If you ever fancied trying Linux, but were a bit worried about partitioning your hard drive, then this might be an ideal solution to your dilemma. Mandriva, who do have one of the best installing distributions of Linux going, and who use KDE which is easily accessible, have now preinstalled their Linux onto a 2 GB flash drive. As long as your PC can boot from a USB port then just plug this in, restart your PC and (providing your BIOS is set up to boot from USB) away you go into the world of Linux. The 2GB storage gives over 1 GB for files, which is plenty for carrying emails and documents around with you, not to mention all your bookmarks, RSS feed and even some light music. And in the end, if you don’t like Linux, then you end up with a 2GB flash drive you can use as simply storage. At €59, which is less than £40, it’s not too expensive either.
