Revoltec 512MB USB 2.0 File Carrier

Filed under
Hardware
Reviews

USB Flash drive technology is becoming more popular with each passing day. Flash disks are progressing because of their high speed and ease of use, they are similar to small hard disk drives that fit into your pocket and you can simply and quickly utilize by placing them into an USB slot. They are also getting smaller while their capacity increases and far easier to use, since they do not require any special driver when using a newer operation system. Revoltec has recently released a distinct USB flash drive, the File Carrier, which was given attention on aesthetics, since it comes in 3 colors and features a nice design. I was lucky enough to be sent a 512MB File Carrier drive, a red version, so let us see if it can perform as well as it looks!

The drive comes in a small but nicely designed package, which should be sufficient protection for it since it weighs almost next to nothing. Not much to say about the retail packaging. The package includes a lanyard which is the same color as your drive, an USB expansion cable which I think is not all that necessary since the drive is tiny but it should be convenient for people that have no front USB ports o¬n their case and finally there is a driver and utility CD.

Manjaro Works To Make Calamares A Distribution-Independent Installer

The Arch-based Manjaro crew has been developing Calamares, an open-source installation framework they hope will basically lead to being a universal Linux distribution installer. The Manjaro camp has been developing Calamares as a distribution installer framework they'll be using for Manjaro 0.9+ and they also hope other Linux distributions will adopt it so it can become somewhat of a universal Linux installer so each distribution camp no longer keeps needing to write their own installer.
