Hi,

I suggested to Luke to use something better than "persistent overlay" to
describe the amount of space alloted for storing software changes and
settings in a Live USB.

How about "permanent storage"?

Tough call -- because the space is used for differences in the whole
file system, not just data storage.  So a 512 MB overlay doesn't mean
the user can store 512 MB of data, especially if they start changing the
package complement.

Any other suggestions please?


A small list:
1) Saved State
2) State Layer
3) Writable Layer
4) Read-Write Overlay
5) Read-Write Area
6) Changeable Image

"User data and system changes are saved to the _BLANK_."

Calling it a "Writable Layer" might make slightly more common sense.
