  • Live USB – Most Linux distributions can be tested without installing on system. #LinuxLove
  • Persistence – All the commands executed in terminal or files copied/downloaded vanishes when the live OS restarts.
    Persistence feature gives the power to hold the data/information on the Live USB even if the system is restarted .
