Universal USB Installer 1.9.5.6

Simplistic piece of software that adopts a step-by-step approach for helping you run a live Linux distribution from a portable USB flash drive

Universal USB Installer is a very easy-to-use application that allows you to run a live Linux distribution from a portable USB flash drive.

Although Linux isn't quite addressed to beginners but you still want to try this version of operating system, don't worry because Universal USB Installer relies on a fairly user-friendly approach.

Step-by-step approach

The whole process of copying a Linux distribution on a removable USB device has been designed as a wizard, so you just need to follow a total of three steps to get the job done.

Pick the desired Linux distribution

First of all, choose the Linux distribution you wish to use. It doesn't really matter whether you want Ubuntu, Kubuntu, Xubuntu or Linux Mint, Universal USB Installer supports them all.

Grab Linux distributions from the Internet or specify the ISO file

And not only that the application comes with support for both older and newer versions of the most popular Linux distributions, but it also provides direct download links to lend you a hand in case you don't have the ISO file on your local hard disk.

Provide the ISO path

Secondly, you need to provide the location to the ISO and it doesn't matter whether you downloaded it through Universal USB Installer or the file was already there on the hard disk.

Select the USB drive

And the last step, choose the USB drive you wish to use, decide whether a format is necessary and set a persistent file size for storing changes. The bigger, the better.

Performance

After that, just wait. It doesn't take more than five minutes and Universal USB Installer does an amazing job, proving to be very effective for most of the supported Linux distributions.

Conclusion

All in all, Universal USB Installer is one of the easiest ways to make your first steps into the world of Linux and it comes with an impressive list of supported Linux distributions.
