FingerGear debuts flash drive with bootable Linux

Posted on Sunday, July 24 2005 @ 03:40:20 CEST by

FingerGear launched the Computer-On-a-Stick Flash Drive. This is a USB 2.0 flash stick with a full bootable operating system based on the Linux 2.6.x Kernel with Gnome GUI Desktop. The Computer-On-a-Stick will be available with 256MB, 512MB, 1GB, 2GB, 4GB and 8GB. It also includes OpenOffice along with other programs such as Firefox and instant messaging tools.

The device is bootable from any PC with an x86 processor supporting USB boot. All bookmarks, address book, emails, and office documents are stored securely on the device and never leave a trace on the host PC. Users enter a login password at each session.

FingerGear reports the Computer-On-a-Stick will feature a public and a private partition. The private partition can only be accessed by booting from the device and after entering a login password while the public partition will be accessible on every Windows, Linux and Mac computer.

The company will soon also launch the Bio Computer-on-a-stick, which will feature a fingerprint reader for biometric authentication. More details at GeekZone
