    Flonix, i'm impressed

    I've just installed Flonix build32 on my 128M USB2 drive, I'me very impressed

    You have everything you want in 62M (multimedia, including a media center), internet(with mozilla firebird 0.7).

    What is very cool, it's about save/restore documents & mails on the USB drive used by Flonix so you have the system, apps and data in the same device, in your pocket.

    The desktop design is cool and the system is really fast.

    As they say on their web site, Flonix is a tip-top system

    I'm not going out without my usb drive now !

    I notice with a USB drive you can store files.
    Do you know if it uses an encrypted filesystem? So that if your USB drive gets into someones hands they can't read your files without your password?

    Yes unless you encrypt them.

    New version of Flonix

    I just downloaded and installed Flonix build 34, I'm very happy of it.

    Desktop enhancments and the new media center skin are very nice.

    Good job

    Flonix build36

    Available today installed today
    Startup with my USB2 key is very fast (less than 1min), I have never see a faster OS start.
    Flonix starts faster than an HD installed OS
    I'll donate to the author, he've done a very good job

    I've just finished setting up Flonix on my Sandisk Cruzer 256 USB drive and it's amazing. I replaced the existing file, fond.jpg, with another file of the same dimensions and now have a custom desktop background as well. It took a while to get my drive bootable but when I switched from Syslinux 2.06 to Syslinux 2.08 it took care of my problem.

    The only things I'm having issues with are the color depth locking in at 256 colors and when shutting down it doesn't save my documents to USB as it says it does... any ideas?

    All in all I'd say this is one of the coolest and useful things I've ever downloaded and I now walk around with my USB key on a neck lanyard everywhere, I look like a dork but I'm never without a bootable Linux distro!

    Build 37 is smaller ( <60MB ), with the same capabilities and easyer to use.
