    Easiest way to make a bootable thumb drive with linux I have found so far.

    I found this tool tonight that just makes it too easy to make a bootable linux thumb drive. You can check the list on the site for the distros it supports at the moment.

    I installed ubuntu and it worked great.

    There is also an option to run ubuntu in a window in Windows via a customized Virtual Box. That works great too.

    Thanks for the tip,

    the GUI looks easy enough to have the USB ready in few minutes.

    Thanks Kent,

    This looks perfect for Linux development. I would much prefer to work with a lightweight Linux on my main PC. I wonder if FreeBasic will run on it.

    I'll try downloading freebasic and let you know Charles.

    FreeBASIC is not available on any of the program repositories for Ubuntu. I then downloaded it from freebasic.net. I got the standalone version.

    When I went to compile hello.bas I got an error. The solution is here:
    http://www.freebasic.net/forum/viewtopic.php?t=11217
    I used the Jaunty commands in that post and it worked with Ubuntu 9.10.

    I got hello.bas to compile, but when I try to run it, it doesn't run. So I don't know what is wrong there.

    Thanks Kent. It looks like FreeBasic has a lot of dependencies, (even for console i/o!) and the required libraries are not always
    available in different distros.

    I will try to confine Oxygen core dependencies to the Linux kernel and Opengl, when the time comes

    Charles have you looked at Chrome OS yet? It is sitting right on top of linux from my readings. I did not download it because system level stuff is beyond me. But I am sure you might find it interesting.

    This is a very interesting an important topic Kent, so I've started a new thread with some videos on Chromium/Chrome OS

    The security stuff proposed for native code on the Google Summit video was astonishing! Complete disassembly
    of application and functional inspection at the binary level
