    I just use the persitive option from SDC while installing the iso to pendrive. Lubuntu has always been fast, furious and to the point. It will work on any machine with a USB port or you can boot from a live CD. This of course for legacy machines.

    So your experience is that a persistent live standard USB 2 pendrive performs well enough to convince people. That's great, because such pendrives are quite cheap today

    I'm thinking aloud now: What tweaks would make such a pendrive more attractive? That makes it worthwhile to use persistence although it makes the pendrive slower compared to a standard live USB drive?

    - touchpad-indicator (for laptops and netbooks)
    - ubuntu-tweak
    - ...

    Or is the persistence impressive enough?

    most people would likely want to see if You tube works well and also if they can play movie and mp3 music. so restricted extras on that persistance might be a good idea.

    Believe me, I know a lot of people who are still on Windows XP and who are very stubborn about that April 8th, 2014 date as if it is still months away and that there is still plenty of time to Either Upgrade to something like Windows 7 or replace the computer entirely with a Windows 8.1 OEM Computer. Never mind the fact that OEM's like Dell and HP are still allowed to sell Original Windows 8 alongside Windows 8.1 because Windows 8.1 is a free update for Windows 8 users. That's the reason why I decided to go back to running Ubuntu 24/7/365. I don't like NON-UP-TO-DATE OEM's.

    I use Pen Drive as we'll. I occasionally have to switch back to Windows 8.1 to update my Apple IPhone 5S or to Update the UEFI Firmware, which is updated using a .exe so I update my Pen Drive with the latest Ubuntu Nightly Build at the same time.
