Hi sorry I am a newbie in linux and was just wondering if it is a good idea to use usb/hdd to boot linux?? I used samsung usb 3.1 128GB to boot Kali linux and it heated up pretty quickly which made me quite worried... the other 2TB hdd I booted debian on it and it seems to be okay so far in terms of its temperature. So my question is that should I be looking to boot linux distros on internal drives or sata (connection?) / ssd drives instead? I read about something saying that usb/hdd are designed to store files and not for continuous reading/writing... because not only will it reduce its usage life, but also there is the risk of the usb/hdd collapsing at any time and lose all its contents inside?
Thanks for taking your time! Any advice is greatly appreciated!!
