For a while now I’ve been wanting a live command-line version of Ubuntu. I even tried to make my own once or twice, but I never really followed through. Lucky for me, somebody else went through the trouble.
Now I can use that as a core-level test to see if a machine is more or less Ubuntu-compliant. My only suggestion, if you use it the same way, is to manually trim
quiet from the kernel boot line when you start it up. That way, you don’t run the risk of encountering that weird ultra-slow boot that sometimes hampers older hardware running 7.10.
