What to learn first ?

Why do you need to run from ram? I imagine that if you are running from ssd you should have a quite decent Linux box. Speed should not be an issue.

Will you ssd be partitioned Linux file system. Porteus can stand in the same partition with an already installed Linux distribution.

[STICKY] Just To Say Hi

Welcome to porteus oldchap. :worship:

With fatdog and mint, you should be in business almost right away. There a few peculiarities to porteus, you should catch them fast. The package manager USM is one of them. We hope you will appreciate this distribution. A review will be appreciated.
