    flonix usb 1.0 the usb desktop

    Imagine a nomad desktop, with your OS, your favorite apps, your datas, compatible with ms windows file formats and windows apps with crossover office, all in a tiny USB flash drive :
    it's flonix usb edition 1.0

    I've bought one and I'me very happy with it, it works fine (some older computers need the boot cd provided).

    I do have my doubts that you bought one, your post looks more like it came from the person making and selling these. Is there any reason to believe that this distro is any better or different than the many freely available small live linux distros that a lot of people have put effort into making freely available as downloads that users can install to their own USB devices? Ones that will not set people back an extra 30 euro?

    Since it use GPL stuff, only the first person need to pay the 30 EURO then can freely distribute it as well as getting the full source if desired.

    with 30 euro (now 29.90 - 36.90 when I bought it), I've also my new USB 2.0 drive, so it's cheap.
    The desktop is easier to use than other "live USB" and the system is really faster, incredibly faster. It's why I'm happy with it

    No wonder you're happy if you are the one who sells it

    I'm not in this company.

    Why are you so malicious with this linux os
    did you tried it, or do you criticize without know

    Because it's a nice OS and I like good technologies.

    Not sure who this is addresed to. But as for my part in the discussion, I still suspect that you are the seller. You just registered here today. You had made 3 posts, all about flonix. One was this one which you started praising flonix, the other two were to very old threads that had not been active since September. In one of those you just posted a URL, in the other, as in this thread, you posted the flonix url. You have now posted 6 times, and almost always on flonix( I see you're making a few more posts on other topics now, but the conclusion has already been made, breaking the observed trend now does not disprove the original observation). You call people so malicious when they did what, question if the software follows the rules of the GPL that it takes it's intilectual property from? If you're not the seller, then I at least hope you can understand why people would suspect that you are. And if you indeed are the seller, then the "I bought one" approach says a lot about the honesty of who customers are dealing with.

    Hey, juklikj, you know what else is interesting?

    A total of 4 users have posted from your IP address. The other 3 are doudou, tuxweb, and knouser. And they all seem to be exclusively making posts about how great and wonderful flonix is, to the exclusion of all else! Thanks for calling this to our attention, had it not been for you people might have though there were actually several people here who legitimately liked the product.

    But wait, there's more! While all 4 users that post from the same IP address all talk about how wonderful and impressed they are by this software, one user name actully responds to another in the thread "Flonix, it's really cool !". Can you see now why I have a problem in believing the things you say? And why I would question the honesty of a business that "markets" this way?
