Reddit: Advanced question. How can I create a multiboot USB key that will run in a virtual machine environment?
I like to keep a micro-USB drive on me with portable apps, music, and movies. I also made it a bootable drive using the YUMI tool. I currently have Mint, Puppy, and several bootable rescue tools loaded. I would like to be able to run these in a VM window but can't figure out how to get them to boot.
I think YUMI uses a GRUB2 system. I tried loading the portable VM program that the linux pendrive site uses. I can get the multiboot window to come up inside the VM but it always hangs up half way into the load procedure regardless of which version of linux I try to load.
The Linux Live program allows you to make a bootable usb that will also load in a VM but it only works with a single instillation of linux and not in a multiboot environment. Any suggestions?submitted by SeriousGoofball

I'm currently using a C720 with a full distro on it. I really like it overall but the TN screen on it is terrible. I've just checked the new Toshiba Chromebook 2 and it look awesome:
It has a IPS screen, 4 gb of ram and a sd card slot to add more storage. It seems to be the best chromebook at the moment if we don't considered the Pixel. Personnaly, it would be my dream laptop if it comes with a better cpu (i3 or i5) and 8 gb of ram for better virtualization.
Anyway, what's your toughts on this chromebook? Is there someone here that has already tested it?submitted by StraightFlush777

The company says it's given the few owners of webOS devices three years of service since canning the software, but that “The user count has dwindled to the point where it is no longer viable to keep the services running.”
