Abstract


What is a LiveCd

As Wikipedia reports, Livecd is a â??generic term for
an operating system distribution that is executed
upon boot, without installation on a hard drive. Typically,
it is stored on bootable media such as a CDROM
(Live CD), DVD (Live DVD), USB flash drive
(Live USB), among others.â?? By using this technology,
users can get a â??tasteâ?? of a full GNU/Linux box
without fighting with any setup or installation. Once
the LiveCd has been booted, everything is loaded in
RAM, keeping the hard disk safe. Of course, once the
machine shuts down, every change is lost.
