Well we heard much talk about installing the portable Linux in USB, and my friend Abdul Haseeb gave a very good demo how to do that. Seeing the need, and also seeing that people are reluctant to install Linux over their existing Operating system, Active Media Products have introduced the Penguin USB.
- Fully compatible with USB 2.0 and 1.1; both Mac and PC
- Hot plug-and-play
- No driver required for most operating systems
- Data retention: 10 years
- Dimensions: 2.2 x 1.2 x 0.8 inches (58 x 31 x 21 mm)
- Capacities: 1GB – 16GB
- Soft non-toxic silicone rubber body
- PVC-free, lead-free and mercury-free
- Keychain included
- 5% of retail price is donated to World Wildlife Fund
The usb stick contains a bootable instance of Ubuntu 9.04. The price of 16 GB stick is $44, 5% of which will go to World Wildlife Fund, that’s great. It’s also available in 2GB, 4GB and 8GB sizes. Now you can experience the Ubuntu without installing it into your PC. Buy it from the active media Product link given above: Buy a Penguin, save a Panda.
