LiveUSB Install – Not Just Another Live USB Creator for Linux

Filed under
Linux

So what happens if you want to try out a GNU/Linux distro, but you don’t want or can’t use a CD/DVD – the answer is pretty simple – you make a LiveUSB.

If you are burning Ubuntu (or any of derivates) you could use Ubuntu’s built-in “Startup Disk Creator”, however you can’t burn other distributions with it.

Other options available include Unetbootin – a more advanced tool which allows you to choose between a auto-download many Linux distros from within the app, or use an already downloaded image of your choice. If you have access to a Windows machine, LiLi (Linux Live USB Creator).

This article is however to present you with a third choice – an app that is more powerful than the two above written ones. Meet LiveUSB Install.
