Hey, I just found this device on-line called a computer-on-a-stick, which is almost what it sounds like, a computer on a stick. I'd like to try it. Does anyone else have any thoughts on how it would work or does anyone own one? I would really love to know more about it.I also saw Bio USB Flash Drive on that site. I saw it at www.fingergear.com (It works in the USB drive and stores info.)

It's only software. You'd be better off buying a pendrive and setting up your own with the software you use configured the way you like it.

$150 for a USB flash disk and some free software?

Both Damn Small Linux and Flash Linux sell USB keys with their distros installed, for a lot less than this, if you don't want the hassle of installing it yourself.
