Hey Jaromil, hey List,

good to here from you ! I hope everything is fine.
In regard to installing "any" Linux distribution to a USB stick versus dyne
I just wanted to highlight the other options which are available unless we
get a "non-beta" of dyne to play with. I had big success running Trisquel
5.5 from a 16GB USB stick for over a year.

I will do the usual testing with some 3D gaming. My system recently got an
update (AMD Quadcore 4x3GHz, 8GB RAM, GeForce 450GTS) and I am curious how
it will deal with Noveau :)

If I can provide further support, then drop me a note :)

Until then I wish you all a merry Christmas and a happy new Year.
