PC Tool's have created an AntiVirus OS run from a cd-rom.
Still under beta but working, it reads database updates from a plugged
in flash drive.
Here is the link to the AOSS Homepage.
It is free to download and use.

Wonderful!
This little OS is very very useful when we're used to do tech support into people's pc (those who click on the "Congrats, you're the visitor number 894244284824 click to claim!!!!!!!!!!!!")
This way we may disinfect our PCs nicely. I've scanned a not so infected HDD with AVG (didn't cleaned it because I tested this other tool). Then this tool also found all the virus on the HDD and cleaned them easily.
A definite must have!
Thanks!

the main reason i use bart is so i can open Firefox go on meebo and tell my friends i just installed Linux over my windows partition for the (would be) 8th time lol. learned to just copy the partition now lol. but yes it is a nice anti-virus, now if only they made external ram jacks so you could actually use your friends computer afterwords we would all be set ;)

Unlike bart pe you do not need to burn a new cd when upgrades come, aoss will read the refdb update file from any plugged in flash drive.

yeah i did that TERRIBLY slow compared to what id use it for especially since it could never boot into my friends ram. react os is basically just wine boots in 5 seconds and runs a good enough amount of programs for fixing my friends computers easily when they mess it up.... and mine to ;). though ill probably just eventually get around to xp on usb and get it to use 150 mb ram without deleting things. certainly no fast boot still lol

Yes, and actually it'd be very useful... more and more devices are slowly rejecting CDs and such technology, so USB OSes would be great!

1. Stores start selling empty PC's (2gb memory no hd, no cd, 1 usb port)
2. People buy them
3. Buy 32GB to 128GB Flash Drive preloaded with Windows <ver>
4. Your entire file system would be portable and interchangeable with any computer! :D
No need for laptops xD

Well... Let me tell you... Small laptops become addictive. I own a 17" Toshiba I took to the Univ 4 3 months or so... (HEAAAVY). Now I own an Acer One, quite good, and it's soooo light that i can hold it with one ONE yes ONE finger only. Sooo... having your little workstation always with you is addictive.

Downloaded it. Boots fast, question of seconds on only 64MB (VMware for the win). Was robust to scan a Win98 partition (also on VMware, albeit without definitions).

(tech ahead) The way they put graphics on a text console is strange...
