Is there a way to run linux from my USB stick with persisting files

#1davidaaronkPosted 8/24/2013 7:41:34 PM
To my dismay, my Ubuntu 12 usb stick doesn't store any data or settings when using the try ubuntu prompt. I'd like a USB stick which I can plug into any computer, run linux on, and have all of my data persist on the hard drive. Is this possible? Doesn't necessarily have to be Ubuntu 12 i'm fine with any somewhat easy to use distro.

Yes. The Universal USB Installer thing allows for persistent drive.

What is this boats magic you speak of... when I search boats linux all I get is some boats game.

The guides I see for making persisting files for ubuntu all require an existing linux system which I don't have atm, and I'd rather set it up on windows 8 if possible.

I do like windows 8, however windows is awful for running certain development tools. Having said that I love .Net
