Make your Linux Live USB

Hi all. I am back again with some small info about installing/trying linux (like Ubuntu, openSUSE Education, Linux Mint, etc.) in your windows machines. You can do it without spending money on burning CD/DVD after you’ve downloaded the image files (commonly in .iso format) of your favorite linux distro. You can use some freeware tools to create live USB and then use them as you’d have used your bootable CD/DVD. One of the advantages of using Live USB is that the process is faster than a normal CD/DVD install process. Here are two small programs for creating live Linux USB drives.

1. Linux Live USB creator; download from http://www.linuxliveusb.com

2. Universal USB Installer; download available at http://www.pendrivelinux.com

If you have a pen drive/USB drive which has capacity of 2GB or more then you can use that to create live installer  and then try before you install.

The wait is over…here is openSUSE 11.3

11_3_out_now

The much awaited release of openSUSE 11.3 is here for all of us. It’s been released today and available for download from the project website. My download is under progress and will be able to share my personal experience after some time only. But, i am pretty much optimistic about it and if everything goes right I am enthusiastic about the launch party at my college as well. Okay, I don’t have much to talk about the distro at this moment. Congratulations to openSUSE team!
