    Live operating systems

    Hey guys does anyone have any idea what live operating systems are. I have a project due at 11 pm tonight and have no idea what a live operating system is? I think it is like Linux or something.

    can any one help?


    here are the questions I need to answer


    List a few of the Live operating systems you can find.

    What are they used for?

    How do they work?


    What are the advantages of running an OS from a CD compared to one on the hard disk?
    What are the disadvantages?

    Who should use them?



    What else could be used to store an operating system?

    Give you a clue: a "Live" OS typically runs from a removable media, and not from a hard drive (like a CD/DVD disc, or a flash drive). Another: Windows CANNOT be a "Live" OS, and neither can Mac OS X. Process of elimination should get you from there.

    Windows can be a live OS. BartPE, is a good example. Use it weekly to make images and run antispyware apps.
