Inerasable memory sticks - ROM

Hi folks,

I heard something about Linux on memory stick which is more convenient to carry.

With DammSmallLinux it is possible to strip the OS download to 60- MB. However a memory stick is a rewritable device. It will not be so safe compared to a CD-R which can't be rewritten. Are there inerasable memory sticks (ROM)?

Disregarding whatever security measures taken if it is a rewritable device, a bad guy can always discover a solution to attack.

Any advice. TIA.

I'm not sure but some memory sticks have small switch to change them to read only
