Linux USB

Linux USB typically refers to the capability to boot and run the Linux open source operating system from a USB flash memory stick or USB pen drive. A portable Linux OS on a USB drive enables users to easily take their operating system, supporting apps and personal settings with them and run the OS from any computer that can boot from a USB flash device. Linux USB can also refer to Linux driver support for the three main USB standards, USB 1.1, USB 2.0 and USB 3.0.
