Install Linux From Pen-drive With Universal USB Installer


One of the joys for me  in using Linux  is the amount of variety I  have. There are so many distro’s some of which are designed for a very specific use.I like to try many Linux distro’s . One problem in trying out different distro’s the amount of CD’s required to burn the iso images of course I can use a re-writable CD but the process of burning CD image takes some time and after sometime CD’s become un-usable. Recently I found a software that makes pendrive bootable  with distro of my choice.

Universal USB Installer is a Live Linux USB Creator that allows you to choose from a selection of Linux Distributions to put on your USB Flash Drive. The Universal USB Installer is easy to use. Simply choose a Live Linux Distribution, the ISO file, your Flash Drive and, Click Install. Other features include; Persistence (if available), and the ability to fat32 format the flash drive (recommended) to ensure a clean install. Upon completion, you should have a ready to run bootable USB Flash Drive with your select Linux version installed.

Why We Use Linux (The Real Reason)


We tell people we use Linux because it’s secure. Or because it’s free, because it’s customizable, because it’s free (the other meaning), because it has excellent community support. But all of that is just marketing crap. We tell that to non-Linuxers because they wouldn’t understand the real reason. And when we say those false reasons enough, we might even start to believe them ourselves.

But deep underneath, the real reason remains.

We use Linux because it’s fun!

It’s fun to tinker with your system. It’s fun to change all the settings, break the system, then have to go to recovery mode to repair it. It’s fun to have over a hundred distros to choose from. It’s fun to use the command line.Let me say that again.

 It’s fun to use the command line.

No wonder non-Linuxers wouldn’t understand.

The point with us Linux fans is – we use Linux for its own sake. Sure, we like to get work done. Sure, we like to be secure from viruses. Sure, we like to save money. But those are only the side-effects. What we really like is playing with the system, poking around, and discovering completely pointless yet fascinating facts about the OS.

And that’s the reason we use Linux because

Linux is Fun
