Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Linux runs great on netbooks, but unfortunately most of them come without an optical drive of any kind which can make it a challenge to install an operating system on them. Unless you have an external DVD-ROM or CD-ROM drive to connect to them, the ideal solution would be to boot from a USB stick.

"Since most modern computers, if not all of them, permit booting from a USB device, this makes for a simple solution. Not only that, USB devices can be used multiple times, unlike the DVD you burn an ISO to and use a handful of times.
