Mandriva releases USB FLash drive Linux distribution
Linux developer Mandriva has updated its operating-system-on-a-stick with the release of Mandriva Flash 2010, which includes a bootable version of the software on a USB Flash drive.
Available from mid-December, Mandriva Flash 2010 puts the latest version of Mandriva Linux onto an 8GB Flash drive, which has 6GB free for a user's own documents and files.
Mandriva describes this method of distributing the operating system as an " ideal companion for travellers", as users can take their desktop with them anywhere.
"Plug in the USB key, boot up your PC and within a handful of seconds the Mandriva Linux 2010 operating system is ready for work, listening to music or surfing the internet," the company said.
