Jeremy Katz on Fedora Live CDs

April 9th, 2008 Comments off

Red Hat Magazine has an interview with Jeremy Katz of Fedora, about Live CDs.

In Fedora 9, one of the new features is persistence for Live USBs. Based on the impression I get, this is a feature that is in high demand and probably has quite a number of uses. Where did your motivation for working on this feature come from; was it the demand from the users, or were you scratching your own itch?
