Abstract
Over the past few years, there have been numerous developments of more efficient and portable ways of using computers. Hardware and storage have been designed to provide progressively smaller systems for computing while speed and data performance has greatly increased. The purpose of this project is to provide a complete Operating System and tools on a USB flash drive. This is done with the aim of providing users with a much more portable, durable and affordable outlook to computing. Users can also share or reuse the same hardware while keeping their operating systems and data separate. This project is necessary as other options require people to have and carry their own hardware, or rely strictly on the operating systems preinstalled on existing machines. Customers have preference for portable and cost-effective devices, while administrators want to simplify asset management. Overall, this project offers a new outlook on using IT hardware while bringing choice and convenience to end users.
