I'm pretty sure being able to boot from a flash drive has been a thing built in the BIOS for 10-15 years now.
Sure, but during its infancy there were a lot of programmatic/compatibility issues as it developed into what it is today. For example, just a few years after the initial release of flash, because of fast development of this new medium, modern flash drives were already unable to boot on certain PCs due to size incompatibility issues at the BIOS level. Which meant you would need to downgrade in order to boot.

Also, if you're old-skool Linux user, you'd remember that 9/10 times those flash OSes would barely run past the boot. 馃槃

The OSes were synonymous with failure.

This show is hilarious, but probably the best season was the first one.

Just set up Elementary OS on old Mac Mini. It's pretty good, beats using unsupported Lion.
