Trying out Linux should be easy; with the help of Linux Live USB Creator it is. Quickly get any Linux distribution to boot from your USB key, complete with a persistent mode for keeping applications and documents in place.
Or is putting the live image on there better, since you can modify content and have the option to install? Basically I want linux on a flash drive so whenever I want to do something with wget or whatever I can pop it in, boot to linux and have a go.

have'm building a computer within the next few weeks, and I'm finishing up the last few things. I want to have Linux and Windows available. I originally was going to go with only Ubuntu, but then I realized it would be easier to run games and stuff from Windows. I bought a 90GB SSD for a boot drive, this is big enough for windows, but it isn't preferred.
I had asked this question on ITSecurity @ Stack Exchange also. There may not be may linux distro users in ITSec, but obviously there are many here. So, I think that it might be appropriate to put that question here also.
