"We all know that like a faithful Labrador, Linux is a geek's best friend. When it comes to recovering data from a crashed system, it's particularly friendly, providing the option to boot from a Live CD or other media and recover files. The good geeks at Active Media Products, however, have taken that one step further with the release of their new BLU — Bootable Linux USB.

"AMP's BLU is a USB drive pre-loaded with the latest Ubuntu release — 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope — which allows a user to boot directly into Linux regardless of the operating system installed on the box in question. According to AMP, it is compatible with Windows 7, and makes the perfect solution for disaster recovery, as it is small, portable, and allows files on the system's hard drive to be backed up to the BLU or to other media."
