comment What type of Linux would need fewer updates?
@slm - also: considering the tools from pendrivelinux.com, i guess what you mean is Universal USB Installer. But there is also a certain difference between Persistent Live USB and Full Linux Install on USB. The tool you mention is for the former (and that is what I am interested in too)

comment What type of Linux would need fewer updates?
@slm - yes indeed. a system (let's say Xubuntu) in a persistent live form on an usb stick is meant to keep some changes like minor customizations, installing certain applications (office, media, internet browsers), but it will not tolerate very well changes in the system files (hardware drivers, kernel)

I am about to give it a try. What tool would you recommend in order to create a live persistent usb version?

comment What type of Linux would need fewer updates?
@slm - sorry, maybe i was not explicit enough: what i mean is breaking the system that is put on a live persistent usb. I mean that I do know how to create a such thing and that I have a certain experience with it. only that upgrading/updating a such system would break it (the system, not the thumbdrive), and for this reason i am looking for an OS that just doesn't need a lot of update-upgrade. i'll re-elaborate
