    Yes, charge $80 for a USB stick with a free OS on it...I most definitely hate it.

    I was expecting this to be a virus in a USB, but this is just a stupidly overpriced Live USB with persistence.

    @Classic80sStuffI know, right? It takes me a few minutes to create a bootable Linux usb, especially if you do a minimum install where you install only the basics...and it comes with Firefox, a browser everyone is familiar with.

    Then they both basically recommend the product even though it is total garbage. They also act like making your own bootable USB with Linux on it is hard to do. I have no idea why it would take that guy an hour to do so since he didn't even do anything except install chromium.

    This is a terrible idea. Better off putting a friendly distribution on an SSD and installing that. Cheaper and faster than this BS.

    Yeah, giving your tech-illiterate grandmother Manjaro sounds like the worst idea you could come up with, other than maybe Gentoo?

    My grandma has been using Linux Mint for 7 years. That said I've only had to set up a printer once during that time. Not this crap though.The best part is she can visit all the shady online solitaire sites she likes and I don't have to worry about viruses.

    Linus, the type of guy to right-click a desktop icon just to click "open" afterward.

    @Fixdal Never even thought of that.

    I often do this too on slow computers, just to get a feel for how stuck the computer is. If the right click menu takes like 5 seconds to load, I reconsider whether I even want to open.

    I still would prefer a puppy linux version.(running from memory is way faster than running from usb)
