Re: Booting from usb, What brands/models work best?
might be a video issue, but ubuntu has always said yes to my gpu before... plus it did work once
I ended up installing a distro to the drive called "super ubuntu" using unetbootin.. this almost works perfectly, apparently there is some way to keep applications/files on it but haven't really got around to really messing w/ it.
super ubuntu seems to be base on 9.04 at the moment and has alot of applications included with it that I would consider staples. Like the start-up manager for instance.
I also read on the topic on doing full installs on flash drives. The one important thing to note is doing this reduces the life of the drive. This is prob. why developers are so preoccupied w/ doing live usbs vs. regular installs.
Of course running puppy of a flash drive would be a completely different story. I might conceder trying this in the future
