On this last point, my colleagues know by now that if I'm gonna be presenting a meeting (in an actual meeting room and using whatever available multimedia is there) then I'm gonna boot with my parasite PC, remote to whatever LAN services or shares I might need and present whatever I have to present but promoting and using Mint at the same time.
haven't found yet a tutorial for making the perfect 'parasite PC' with Mint.
first time tried Julia on a 8GB USB microHDD then last saturday bought a Kingmax 8GB micro pendrive (2mm thick) to be able to carry the Katya parasite in my coins wallet.
tested Katya so far on three ThinkPads: T410, W500, T60P everything ok
vesamenu.c32 boot error - understand is same since Mint 9 - type live all the time or edit first line in syslinux.cfg.
don't like the way it holds the persistent stuff (actually not the system settings / prefs. but the docs, downloads & media) in the casper-rw, inaccesible from win and hard-accesible from other linux.
your forgot to add IMHO!
tutorials should provide some (a) context, (b) application and (c) the howto... this tutorial meets those requirements. this tutorial is not rocket science or about complex configs or programming. it is a tutorial about a concept. tutorials are not limited in scope, particularly for this community. was there something in the easy steps that you didn't understand? I felt it would be redundant to write a tutorial that spells out how to plug in a USB drive or how to install apps or configure the desktop appearance... IMHO.
This is not a tutorial, it misses the point which is that it is meant to actually show how to do something!
