    Is there a Linux OS similar to Eye OS?
    « on: August 01, 2008, 07:03:38 PM »
    I have heard of some versions of linux that can run on a thumb drive. So I'm wondering if there is one that will run on a shared hosting account similar to how Eye OS runs. My objective to this is just to learn the linux environment and commands more better while I'm at work during my downtime. I understand their will be some obvious limitations if such a thing does exists.

    Thank you for any feedback!

    Regards,

    Dias de verano

    If there was, I should think it would be just like EyeOS, which is very much like a Linux live CD in feel. I have to say thanks for being the reason I found out about EyeOS. It's really cool.

    [UPDATE]

    Perhaps you will be interested in EyeNux?

    Can be installed on USB flash drive

    eyeNux is a new kind of Operating System which allows you to use your personal datas and applications from anywhere in the World, at any time.
    It is based on the Linux Kernel, a very stable and fast Operating System, and uses the eyeOS Desktop, a totally Web Based Desktop Environment.
    So, with eyeNux, you can simply connect to your online (or local, if you don't have an Internet connection) eyeOS Desktop, manipulate your files, play games,... without having to install anything.

        Ahh crap.. The download link for eYeNUX is timing out and non responsive. Can anyone throw me a link to the 1.2 version that was released? I'll let you know when I download it so you can take it down or remove the link. I'd appreciate it!

        If I can hunt it down before anyone responds I'll let ya all know as well.

          Nevermind guys, I found it on a distro site here: http://www.distromania.com/distro_info.php?distro=1097

          I thought this was just a EyeOS Application but if it's 310 MB in size, I must be confused with what all it does. Either way, should be interesting to say the least! I'm excited to check it out.

          Andy,
