Austrumi Linux 1.9.3 Review

[ Thanks to Jim Lynch for this link. ]

"As you might imagine, Austrumi Linux is not geared toward competing with Ubuntu, Fedora or any of the larger desktop distributions. Rather it’s all about portability and the ability to maximize utility while minimizing the actual size of the distribution...

"Austrumi is designed to run in RAM so an install is not necessary to use it. However, you do have the option to install it to a hard disk or onto a USB device. I mucked around with the hard disk install but wasn’t able to get it to work in VirtualBox. Your mileage may vary, however, so if you want to play around and see if you can get it installed, go for it. Please take a moment and share the results in the comments section below if you do decide to do an install."
