This is an image of a fully customized and configured Operating System Boot Environment. Once downloaded, simply write the file to a PHYSICAL thumb drive, hard drive or SSD, or use it as a virtual disk drive. Installation requires a minimum of ~2GB, making it ideal for a small thumb drive, but you can install it to virtually any device and expand it to use as much or as little space as you’d like, add your own partitions (supports encrypted file systems) and generally configure it any way you like.
