I’d recommend puppy Linux which basically just loads itself to ram... super fast on pretty much anything, even with only 2-4 gigs of ram which is typical of the pc you’re looking to give a speed boost

Watching this on a computer which was bought in 2010. It has 2GB Ram and pentium IV I think. Creating the installer using unetbootin and Installing it took, like 20 minutes. I use it to download torrents, mostly.

I actually like cloudready (chrome-O.S. like). Most linux distros dont like popular usb 3.0 external hard drives - works great in cloudready. And also runs great from flashdrive, so you dont have to even mess with your existing setup.

$80 is worth the "effort" of creating a live USB to linus? for real? LiLi takes like 10 mins what have you been smoking linus? UNIVERSAL USB INSTALLER will even download the iso for you its literally point and click many other simple easy tools too requires no skill - en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Live_USB

"The extra time to create a bootable Linux USB drive" ummm.... about 5 minutes. If you don't know what you're doing. For that price you can get a NEW computer that's reasonably fast.

Ok, I know what this thing really is, and it's sickeningly ingenious. When tech-challenged folks end up with their PC slowing down to TRS-80 levels, they don't think in terms of malware and plain ol' software updating itself out of your physical memory capacity. So they see this turn-key system and suddenly they have an albeit slow but usable computer and they think it somehow fixed their existing computer.

I dunno, $50 is still way too much for essentially a live usb. A 10-20% markup is one thing, but this is 5-10 times the price just for burning a linux image on it. (I recently got a 32 GB flashdrive -- non sandisk -- off Amazon for 4.99 American rupees)

You know wjen windows 8 came out microsoft moved to the teletubies interface , taking away all of the traditional menus in apps. This to me was the single biggest deterrent for not continuing to use windows for anything. It meant that many functions became hidden instead of obvious . in most distro of linux those menus remain as they also do in osx . If you ask me, microsft is making windows harder to use with each release

Hasn’t Gran got learn to alter the boot configuration in the bios.... good luck as with most Sony laptops as it’s locked down with a non disclosed password. Only Sony have the password!! FileRes is like VoidTools -Everything search which works with Wildcards. My opinion .... granny should stick to her old PC, roll a spliff and enjoy a good joint while she’s waiting for Windows to load. These guys should have run Conky on their distro and seen how hard it was processing.

It's just a live USB with persistence. And everything isn't Ubuntu - Ubuntu is based on Debian, and then there are many distros based on Debian. In turn, there are many distros based of each of those distros based on Debian. Hard to keep track of all the flavors. Also, since linux is opensource and free to use, so.......what exactly are people paying for? The FileRez program? The only way they can make people pay for something which is literally free to use, is to put in some kind of proprietary software which is non-free, which in turn means that THAT is what you're paying for. How does this work with the GNU license? Doesn't it break a few rules here? On a different note, would you pay that much money for a piece of software that literally just finds your pictures and documents, something which you can do by default in all linux systems anyway?

@Matthew Aazimox - Grandma typically take services from local PC techs to get them installed. Why would you use an SSD in a slow USB 2.0 port? If she gets help from local PC tech or a techie in family, SSD may cost significantly lower than this junk and get huge performance jump just like the latest PCs if they ran atleast a Core 2 Duo 45nm Processor with 4GB DDR2 or DDR3 RAM
