What USB memory you used?
This. http://buffalo.jp/products/catalog/flash/ruf2-lvs-bk/
Speed is 30MB/sec. Costs about 15 USD for 4GB model. (Amazon Japan, including shipping fee).

How much size of USB memory required?
1GB is Okay. But high speed type is recommended.
I use 4GB, because there is no 1GB high speed USB memory in Japan.

What PC you used?
The PC I used to capture the video is PentiumE 2Ghz.

What PC is requied?
Any PC, if you can run Ubuntu Lucid Lynx.

What language supported?
English/Japanese/Chinese/Korean....Actually, all langs as long as Ubuntu supports.

Apt-get/Synaptics is Okay?
Okay.

Source code:
No compile, no C lang. What I wrote is many shell scripts in USB:/okajima/ dir.

License:
GPL.

RPM supported?
No. Here is Ubuntu, not Redhat. Only deb supported.

         Google ver.           Okajima ver.
PC       Special netbook.      Any PC.
App      Only Chrome browser.  All apps in Ubuntu.
Devel    Difficult(Gentoo).    Same as Ubuntu.
Update   Very fast.            Also very fast.
Boot     Less than 10 sec      Less than 10 sec,
         including BIOS.       *except* BIOS(sigh...).


Difference of boot time:

Google special netbook:
Power ON ->less than 10 sec(linux+special BIOS) ->the net.

Okajima( normal PC):
Power ON -> about 20 sec(normal BIOS) -> USB boot -> less than 10 sec(linux) -> the net.

I believe that the biggest bottle neck of booting time is not OS, not distribution, but BIOS. Google uses special BIOS to speed it up, but you have to buy a special netbook.


The Next Version:
You can run Windows from USB.
Release date: April 2011.

You can boot Windows fron USB.


Copy and Paste between Linux and Windows.


Chromium + Ubuntu + Windows.


Chromium + Ubuntu + Windows + Gnome.

PC spec I used:
CPU : AMD Sempron 2600+
Very old at this distance in time.
But this does not matter so much.
Mem : 2Gbytes. But 1Gbyte would work.
USB : 2.0



Any opinion, suggestion, request... all very welcome. Mail me freely.
