Linux on a CF card configured as a "Live CD" to minimize/eliminate writes?
Subject: Linux on a CF card configured as a "Live CD" to minimize/eliminate writes?
I found a SATA to CF adapter
I know that CFs wear out more quickly, so this brings me to my question. How would it be possible to setup Linux (like Mint) properly on a CF card for minimal wear and tear? In my mind, I'm kind of thinking of it like a Live CD on the CF card -- but configured with programs I want and particular system settings of my preferences -- how do I do that?
