Red Hat's Fedora 9 Linux Now Runs Off USB Keys



Hi,

http://www.everythingusb.com/fedora-9-14701.html

"Creating a portable Linux desktop, according to Fedora project leader Paul Frields, opens up new opportunities for "low-heat producing, low-power consuming mobile devices..." that run off a comfortably on a 2GB USB drive. Another idea would be to install public kiosks in school or Starbucks where users can boot off their own Linux OS with all the familiar applications on a thumbdrive. Unfortunately, large footprint apps like OpenOffice and multi-language support, are off limits to this approach, but users can still combine small apps like AbitWord, email, calender & browser without taking too much memory.
