3GB USB bootable Micro Hard drive with Ubuntu Linux



Just found a reference to this product at barrapunto.com. It’s a 3GB microdrive in a “big usb cracker”kind of form factor. (Not solid state, it does have moving parts I understand.) It comes with Ubuntu linux preinstalled with Office suite/web browser, all the trimings. It will boot on PC’s that support booting from USB. Of course any changes are saved to the micro drive itself, and no touches are made to the computer systems internal drive. It’s about 35 grams, the size of a square lighter and is selling for 135 Euros.

Very nice, the next challange I see is convincing people that you’re not the devil incarnate for wanting to reboot the machine to use it. Good luck with that one. I’ve seen some very funny reactions of people to something “different” coming up on their screen as the system boots any removable media (“I’ve never seen that before, it’s always been that blue sky thing”).
