I just read that Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid Ibex) supports Live USB installation and that basically turns my external hard disk drive into a Ubuntu OS installation right? Would I be able to install more software and make permanent changes to the OS then? Or will it be like the Live CD where everything is temporary? And would anyone by any chance know if the Ultimate Edition 2.1 (based off Intrepid Ibex as well) supports Live USB? One last question! Should I just wait for the 9.04 Jaunty Jackalope since it's coming out in... 20+ days?
