Why would I want a Portable Linux USB Key?
Apart from the cool factor, mentioned in my opening paragraph, there are many practical uses for your new Linux USB Key. Lets take a look at a few situations where your Linux USB Key will save the day!
Scenario #1: Hard drive dies: Imagine for a minute your computers hard drive dies, a scary prospect I know, without your Linux USB Key you are without a computer! With your Linux USB Key you are now able to boot from your USB Key and have access to your e-mail, your IM (Instant Messenger) contacts, and a fully functional web-browser.
Scenario #2: Technical Support: Most of us have been there, whether it be for ourselves, friends and family, or a client, something goes wrong with the operating system. You can now use your Linux USB Key to boot into a fully functional operating system, troubleshoot various software issues, remove malware/spyware/a virus, and most importantly mount drives and retrieve important information from an unstable system.
Scenario #3: I love Linux!: Most of us still have friends/family/clients still using a non-*NIX based operating system. What happens when we are forced to use these “other" operating systems? We fumble, fidget, and sit there wishing we had access to our Linux system. Now you do! Simply boot any computer outfitted with a USB port with your Linux USB Key and enjoy the wonderful world of Linux. Not only does this put us back in our comfort zone but we no longer have to make any changes to the system we are using to check our e-mail, log into our instant messenger accounts, or hang out in our favorite IRC (Internet Relay Chat) channel.
The possibilities are really endless with your new Linux USB Key. Use your imagination and make use of it as much as you can. The geek in all of us will sleep better at night knowing you can enjoy Linux from virtually anywhere!
