Subject description: this week it is about Portable operating system on a thumb drive
 

This week we shared a review of Secure-K OS, an operating system which is designed to be run from a USB thumb drive. We would like to find out how many of our readers use such an operating system. Do you have a distribution such as Secure-K OS, Tails, or Puppy that you carry around with you on a removable drive? If so let us know which one you prefer in the comments.

I would say that Bionicdog has a feature that makes it more secure than other OS, you can choose if you want to save or not at the end of your session, if you do not save, if infected by malware, your operating system is clean next time you boot it.

It is a feature found in some of the best security-oriented distros, so it is a good reason to have it installed on a thumb drive.

A ripoff from the conventional Puppy distributions then.

Just a long known ability of Union FS (aufs being a re-write of UnionFS):

Wikipedia wrote:

Unionfs can also be used to create a single common template for a number of file systems, or for security reasons. It is sometimes used as an ad hoc snapshotting system
...
Union mounts have also been available in BSD since at least 1995
...
Sun Microsystems introduced the first implementation of a stacked, layered file system with copy-on-write, whiteouts (hiding files in lower layers from higher layers), etc. as the Translucent File Service in SunOS 3, circa 1986
...
