Is it the End of the Road for Live CDs?

January 26th, 2009

Free Software Magazine asks if the era of Live CDs is starting to wind down. I personally can’t see this happening until USB flash drives are as inexpensive as CD/DVD media, and even then, the era of Live USB flash drives will be flourishing.

I was window shopping in a high street electronics store a few days ago. I was delighted to see a shelf display full of netbooks from vendors like Samsung, Acer, Dell, Advent and Asus (of course), to name a few. It looked like the Asus EeePC had launched an idea whose time had come and in the process possibly heralded the long withdrawing roar of the live CD.
