I just ordered a Corsair 16GB flash drive from the Egg. It is the Flash Voyager model, but not the GT.
Specifications for the thing are as scarce as hen's teeth even on the Corsair site, except that it claims compatability with Linux 2.4 and above.
From the reviews on the seller's site, this stick is preformatted FAT32 and, depending on which "expert" you care to believe, it is anywhere from lightning fast to excruciatingly slow. On the other hand, C/NET (Australia) gave it an Editor's Choice Award. Go figure.
The entire purpose of getting this thing is to create a Linux-driven, mini-computer on a stick.
I would like some feedback from you all about recommended Linux distros you have used successfully/unsuccessfully from a flash drive. Any tips, tricks warnings or other guidance will be appreciated.
Finally, have you EXPERIENCED any problems with recently manufactured computers not being able to run a flash-driven OS?
