So I was looking around for a quick and dirty utility to create a USB pendrive for me. Or maybe a pendrive with a few utilities onboard.
As it turns out, both needs are met pretty readily by Pen Drive Linux. It’s a slick little app that’ll format a pen drive for you then install any of a number of distributions or utility isos directly to the drive, taking the tedium out of creating your own USB utility drive.
If you’re using Windows and want to give it a whirl, check in over at pendrivelinux.
