This guide is in direct response to http://kpweb.homelinux.org/blog/index.php?id=17 - a guide that uses a rather roundabout and un-hacker like way to install Linux onto a USB stick using a virtual machine.

Why would a company rent an office in a tiny town in East Texas, put a nameplate on the door, and leave it completely empty for a year? The answer involves a controversial billionaire physicist in Seattle, a 40 pound cookbook, and a war waging right now, all across the software and tech industries.
A more informative summary: A 50 minute report from NPR America about patent trolls.
