LXer: Ubuntu "Stick" Blues - or USB for short

Published at LXer:

LXer Feature: 29-Oct-2009

There could be several reasons why your PC doesn't have a CD-ROM. For example, the next scenario:
  • 1) You damaged the mobo fan while hoovering dust,
  • 2) The new fan you bought featured adhesive tape which didn't last at 60 degrees (C), and an iron cord didn't fix it, causing the fan to fall of,
  • 3) The northbridge burned,
  • 4) The new 'green' AMD780G mobo you bought could not facilitate both your CD-ROM and IDE drives,5) Given your IDE drives were part of a RAID array, you decided not to connect your CD-ROM drives.

OK, your reasons will probably be different, but these are mine. "Not a problem" I thought. "After all, it's 2009. Who needs CD-ROMs anyway?" The answer is: Mandriva, Gentoo, Tinycore and even Windows 7 don't, but Debian derived stuff does. It makes your life really hard, while Ubuntu is meant to make your life as a human being simple.
