Have you tried JustBrowsing? Seems to be what you are looking for. [X] Installable on a USB device "Boot from CD-ROM, USB, hard drive, I-ODD, or Virtual Machine." There is an USB boot option on the Start Guide that guides you through. [X] An up-todate browser (preferably Chrome, Chromium or Firefox) "Releases are built with the latest version of ...

What you want isn't possible. The PC architecture assumes the presence of some amount of RAM - it's not a choice of OS issue, it's a hardware architecture issue. There are all sorts of things that simply CAN'T work without some RAM in the system. I'd bet you can't get very far in the BIOS in any normal PC without some RAM present. It IS entirely possible to ...

You can have a complete operating system running on your usb stick. I do formatting and backups often so I set up an 8GB stick with a complete install of Fedora 20 XFCE and it works wonders. I have the following software installed and up-to-date: Google Chrome (so I don't have to install the flash plugin) Libre office Writer, Impress and Calc Media codecs: ...

I am reasonably sure that QNX can support 10 Gigabit Ethernet. I found an experimental driver for Intel 10 gigabit controllers dated 2 years ago the their foundry area, here, and several other references to other 10/100 Gigabit Ethernet devices on the site.

For IT departments Nirsoft Bluescreenview is a nice tool to show the content of a BSOD the same way it was displayed on the screen. This is often sufficient to find out the data needed for googling a problem (like the STOP code etc.). This is fine if your task is mainly of IT administrative nature. Bluescreenview is free and portable The central factor ...

From talking to several Windows distributors, I gathered the following information: Using Embedded Windows - generally not allowed, because it must be bundled with a physical device OEM Licensing - not allowed for the same reason Volume Licensing - not allowed, because Volume Licensing can only be applied for the end users, but Volume licenses cannot be ...

Have a look at Puppy Linux: bootable from USB runs on RAM very low system requirements two main builds: one Slackware based and the other Ubuntu based has ntfs support it's not x64 includes other software (web browser, text editor, MP3 player) it can save user data and settings on a file on USB

Why not deploy on a cloud VM? Is that an option? There is a lot of competition in this area, which means that a hosting partner may already have volume discounts on OS licensing. Amazon EC2 and Azure are the major players, but there are numerous options if this is a possibility.

I use TinyCoreLinux, with which I've managed to get a full Linux OS and a browser (Opera, other browsers are available) in under 32MB, installed to USB. (WiFi drivers require considerably more space.) The smallest full-featured distro I've found is Slitaz, which has a 35MB ISO. Includes Midori browser, office applications, media players, etc. I haven't ...

Assuming that, you want to delete partitions manually. I haven't tried EFI but Paragon Backup & Recovery has bios and EFI ISO's which you can create under Windows.

I think it might be worth your while taking a look at the various "Open" hardware and software mobile phones on offer or nearing completion, e.g.: Project Ara Yes still Android but the price break should be met even with a good memory space Other PhoneBloks members Also you should look into the various efforts to build Linux images to run on existing ...

I think that you realistically only have one option, and that is to buy a retail license and ship that as part of your virtual appliance. If you purchased a MS volume license as the end user, I don't think you are legally allowed to resell it. (If your company is a authorized MS volume license re-seller, then you might be able to get away with it.) ...

I don't have an install of coreboot handy but I believe that ubuntu or trisquelmight be a good choice. The entirety of my answer depends on the availability of a few third party components for maximum awesomeness, but it should work. I'm looking at a few elements here. Has anyone run this distro or its derivatives on coreboot? Ministry of freedom runs ...

For kernel driver developers Windows kernel crash dumps can be analyzed with WinDbg (pronounce "windebug", "windbag" or "win-dee-bee-gee"). WinDbg is provided by Microsoft (MSDN) for free. Once installed, you can simply copy the directory, so basically it's even portable. Regarding the central analysis of crashes, you can e.g. run it on a server and ...

Ubuntu Linux Advantages: No need for virus filter Nice GUI Fast It will be fast 10 years later, too Disadvantages: It is not a Windows Windows XP You have likely a media error. So, you need a new CD. Download a Windows XP in iso from anywhere, write it to a new CD, and use your legal license key to activate it. Advantages You got what you want ...

First of all, you might want to check for support of your UEFI/CPU. I used to own a Asus T200TA and the support for Linux was really not great (It wouldn't even fully install because of supporting only 32-bit uefi and other problems like theses) so I'm not sure support has really evolved. There are not a lot of distributions that will check all of your ...

It will be tough to meet all your requirements with Linux. You don't specify the tablet, but the description implies that it has very limited resources. Assuming that's the case, it will be an uphill battle to fit a regular distro that supports all your needs. Are you experienced with Linux? It will make a huge difference whether you're a Linux newbie or ...

If you are looking to modify the source code for an OS without revealing your source code changes, then you cannot use Linux. The GPL license they use requires you to make your source code available to anyone receiving your changed software. (Well, you can make changes for yourself only, but you cannot distribute copies, or ship products containing that ...

Python is rapidly rising in the ranks to become one of the most popular programming languages. It's very versatile. Java is another great language to learn because it is still used basically everywhere. However, the choice of which programming language to use is really up to you. For example, if you're a great C programmer but not that experienced in the ...

I think "VMware Player" is the free version you are looking for. You should find it at several download portals. But you cannot create your own VMs with it, you will only be able to "play" already prepared machines. I personally did not experience exceptionally bigger problems with VirtualBox during the last time, but I am also not using Windows 10. Still, ...

You can take a look at the various tools provided by HashiCorp these include: Vagrant - lets you come up with a recipe for your development environment including OS, Settings, Tools & Users. Packer - to take those recipes and generate machine images Terraform - Write, Plan, and Create Infrastructure as Code Vault - for security Consul - Service Mesh ...

You should give Lubuntu a try ... Here is a quote from that link: Lubuntu is a faster, more lightweight and energy saving, official flavour of Ubuntu using LXDE, the Lightweight X11 Desktop Environment. Lubuntu is designed to be fast and easy to use. It has lots of applications for every daily need, while keeping your system light and responsive, being it ...

"Hassle free" in your question translates to which operating system has the best combination of official and community support, which in my opinion is clearly Ubuntu. Stack Overflow questions tagged with hadoop ranked by number of questions Ubuntu - 1,645 results CentOS -   428 results Fedora -      36 results Linux ...

I too am looking for something similar to IP Personality. I'm not sure if it meets your requirements, but honeyd can do similar. You can set a "personality" in the configuration such as: set default personality "Linux 2.2.14"

TL;DR: As of mid 2017 in my opinion the best KDE Plasma distributions are OpenSUSE [Tumleweed], KDE neon and Manjaro. KDE project page has a list of patrons on the bottom, among which are OpenSUSE and Cannonical who are directly maintaining their Linux distros and have largest impact on Plasma desktop. Kubuntu right now is not the best distribution with ...

Kubuntu is free, well maintained and has the KDE interface, has a very supportive developer/user community, etc. - I like it a lot and have yet to see any builtin adware, pay-per-whatever and I am reasonably sure that if it were sharing users data all over the place alarm bells would have been well and truly rung. It is also a nice complete install and ...

Gentoo uses OpenRC by default. Strenghts: highly customizable no bloatware very up-to-date packages Weaknesses: compiling takes time may be hard to install for linux starters

A lot of time has passed but here's what I did anyways: I picked Debian, essentially for the reasons outlined in Journeyman's answer but hoping Debian would be more light-weight on the RAM. Then I made a regular install onto the hard disk of the target machine, installed all the needed drivers and stuff and then made a bootable CD / DVD from that install (...

I would strongly recommend the Hashicorp ecosystem of Vagrant, Packer, etc. they let you specify and provision your operating system, installed software, settings, etc., in a version controllable manner using json scripts. Cross Platform Multiple targets Free, gratis & Open Source with the exception of one or two of the offerings but you can 100% work ...
