boot and run from USB sticks and drives, Compact Flash cards, CDs
and DVDs; so they never need to touch the hard drive, or even have
a hard drive present. Some of them run entirely in memory. Some are
smart enough to use the swap partition on the hard drive, if one is
available. There are different ways of preserving data and
configurations, the main point being you can still save data and
configurations.”
