It seems that not every USB stick is going to perform adequately, or even work at all, on every computer, plus there's always a chance that you'll get a bad one, so the important thing is to buy yours from a store with a hassle-free in-store return or exchange policy which you should enquire about ...

All I had were 4 & 8G USB sticks around the house so I figured maybe I could load up on some cheap higher capacity drives so I found Kingston Digital DataTraveler SE9 32GB USB 2.0 Flash Drive for $7 each and ordered 4. When they got here, I put MX live on one and it was so slow, much slower than th...

Experience with MX on USB sticks, external drives

I like to use full installs of Linux on USB sticks, both to have a portable OS, but also for testing, playing around with distros. Another nice thing about USB sticks is the price has come way down on them. I just bought a 120 gb USB for $20. Yet not all USB sticks are the same. I've generally had g...

Re: Microsoft would like to bring Edge to Linux

This article from awhile back was interesting speculation: 'https://www.zdnet.com/article/ms-linux-lindows-could-microsoft-release-a-desktop-linux/ For awhile I thought MS might buy Ubuntu, but the more I think about it, the less likely it seems.

Re: Microsoft would like to bring Edge to Linux
