Re: Install on a usb stick
I don't know. I got the impression they don't like the use of UUIDs in GRUB from some reading I did in their web forum a while back, I can't imagine why. I think booting with UUID numbers is the best invention since sliced bread!
I wonder why Mint doen't use uuids like Ubuntu does.
It will be particularly useful when USB3 comes in, and people will likely be installing Linux operating systems in USB SSD drives so they can carry their own operating systems around in their pockets, complete with all of their favorite files and settings.
I think USB3 will dramatically change the way we use computers in the future, and most likely in Linux's favor. Computers will be more like boxes that we plug our USB3 drive into, I imagine. USB3 will start to appear sometime soon. It will be a while before it gets to my neck of the woods though.
Oh wow! I'm jealous! I'm a big fan of OCZ drives and I want one too! I really want an OCZ brand SSD drive! I'll get one sometime soon.
I have a pretty fast flash drive and I'm not too worried about the wear (it has life warranty, whatever that means) - it's OCZ Rally2.
Not really, especially with a good quality brand of drive like OZC, but there are a few things that won't do any harm and may boost your speed a little. I'm out of time for now, I'll come back and elaborate later on . . .
Do I need any special tweaks (like, different mount options, etc.) to improve the performance a bit more?
