Most Linux can be run from a "Live" CD/DVD/USB media, without installing anything on the computer's hard drive

  • desirable for evaluation of Linux on computers having Windows installed, where inexpert installation could overwrite Windows
  • enables unknown Linux to be evaluated for functionality & ease of use
  • NB any software will take relatively long to load and be relatively slow to run in this mode

Live CD/DVD/USB can be created via most operating systems, using files that are mostly free to download from the Internet. See: Using dotISO Files
