Mandriva FLASH 4GB USB Stick


user posted image


This looks like a great product if you want to try out linux and also for a true O/S on the go. Sounds like it can run from practically any machine and it does nothing to the operating system already installed on the machine.

Some highlights about this product:
  • Mobile: take it everywhere and make any desktop your own!
  • Handy: everything for your office work, Internet and multimedia... on a stick!
  • Keep your personal datas in your pocket!
  • Fun: spectacular 3D-accelerated desktop, only with Linux!
  • Safe: it doesn't make any changes on the host computer
  • Reliable: unmatched stability and hardware recognition
  • Fast: high data transfer rates with USB 2.0
  • Storage: up to 3GB available for user files

Tech Details:
  • 4GB USB flash drive designed by Dane-Elec Memory (5 year warranty!)
  • A neck strap
  • Mandriva Linux 2007 KDE 32-bit
  • Mandriva Club trial account: Silver level 1 month
  • Supplementary CD image to boot even on legacy systems
  • Mandriva web support: 1 month*
  • Automatic hardware detection**

Core and Software:
FlashPlayer 9.0.31.0 - glibc 2.4 - KDE 3.5.4 - kernel 2.6.17.11mdv 1 - Mozilla Firefox 1.5.0.10 - OpenOffice.org 2.0.4 - RealPlayer 10.0.8.805

Here is the link to check it out:

At $89 Euros the price is a little steep, although considering you get a fully functional system it seems like a reasonable price. I wonder if there is someway to 'Burn' your own copy of linux onto a USB stick. (LFS?)

You could use any distro to make a setup like that. People have built an LFS on 256 MB sticks, and the first time I ever installed Ubuntu, it was on a 1 GB stick like this. Granted the more space you have the more you can do. And I wouldn't expect a whole lot out of a 256 MB install nowadays. But Flash drives just show up the same as any SCSI hard drive, so with any Linux distro you should be able to simply tell it to install to /dev/sda and be set. Not a bad idea though how they're packaging one pre-built. It'd be like buying a hard drive with Linux pre-installed... Essentially the same thing.
