So, as stated above, I mainly address some people, which may have made some experience with a portable os and various storage-types. As we know, the good old HDD are the most durable types of disks.
Then there are ssd's.
And somewhere after them, we have the memory-sticks, usb-sticks, sd-cards, etc.
Currently I have a linux distro installed on my usb-drive, with full disc encryption. It runs smooth, very fast ( though being an USB-2 port ) and I really enjoy this, i enjoy this that much, that i almost never plug out this already small usb-stick. Ok, it get's a bit warm, but I do not care.
Two weeks ago I bought myself a SD-Card. I plugged it into my lap and I am even more satisfied, because it has no edge being outside at all, it is completely inside the slot. This small advantage is already enough for me to ask:
Should I consider to transfer my os from my USB to the sd-card ? Both have the same size, vendor, and appereantly the same speed-specifications.
Will my usb-drive live longer then the sd-card? Will the sd-card also get warm, like the USB-drive does ? Is the usb-drive more designed to work with many quick read/write-accesses or the sd-card ?
Is there a general recommendation at all ?
