I am Fedora, and so can you!

Red Hat Magazine has instructions for making a Fedora 8 bootable USB flash drive.

I am writing this article on a Windows laptop borrowed from a friend. But fear not, dear reader, for I have not abandoned my free software principles. For while the hard disk of this laptop contains the Windows operating system, I have used a USB key as the boot device, and the laptop is currently running Fedora 8, codenamed “Werewolf.”

openSUSE 10.3 LiveCDs are now available, and like others before them, they can now be used to install an openSUSE system.

From today on the live version of openSUSE 10.3 is available as GNOME or KDE Live CD. Both contain the same software as the 1 CD installation versions from launch time – just as live system.

OpenSolaris Project Indiana Review

November 1st, 2007 Comments off

Phoronix has a review and pics of the first development release of OpenSolaris Project Indiana.

After downloading this ISO (the Developer Preview is only 629MB), the image can be burned to a disc and immediately booted. Project Indiana incorporates a “Slim Install” LiveCD for x86 systems. Just like Ubuntu, Fedora Live, and a number of other Linux distributions, you can boot to this CD and start using it without ever touching the contents of your hard drive.
