Reminders of good stuff are always good. Never know when it will be needed.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.

Just adding to the thread:
Review: Linux Live USB Creator makes it easier to install Linux | PCWorld

And might give it a whirl on my old original Toshiba laptop which doesn't seem to handle even browsing the net very well anymore. (Old single core, etc....not made for all the flash and glitz and especially multiple tab browsers...)

Things do go a bit quicker running off a usb stick rather than a cd.

Sardu is another twist on a usb install.  It lets you install multiple bootable iso's.

And it also includes a variety of tech tool ISOs.  It's nice to have a live linux distro, a bootloader, a partitioner, etc. on one USB stick.
