    LiveUSB, because optical media is obsolete. Neither my desktop more my netbook have an optical drive.

    After purchasing a movie on DVD, i use the magic of the internet to acquire a fair-use backup, in case the DVD fails to magically conjure a DVD drive into my 3.5" drive bay to allow me to watch it.

    Depend on the motherboard I guess mine will use both but I found out that it did not detect the USB stick nine times out of ten!

    Live USB for my personal use, Live CD for giving away to people.

    Live CD. A pack of 50 costs less than $15.00. That's 35,000MB. Ain't gonna get anywhere near that with a pen drive or flash drive.

    And if you screw up, you have a new coaster for your coffee cup.

    Live usb. Install times are cut in half, and you can make and save changes to it.
