I just got this little thumb drive in the mail yesterday. I am anxious to plug it in to one of the old laptops we have laying around here. While anyone could, with some effort, take a 64 Gig stick and load a copy of Linux on it, this is the lazy man's USB computer, and comes with the software pre-installed, with a Windows like interface. Just plug it in, and boot from the USB stick, and you have a working computer again. The hard drive in the computer doesn't even have to be present or working. I opted for the USB drive with 64 GB of onboard memory (around $50); but, you can get one of these without memory for less. I will let you know how this little experiment works out; but, if you want a computer you can wear on your key ring, this is the one for you.
