Just discovered this, sounds freaking incredible.

is an open source tool to create bootable USB drive for ISO files. With ventoy, you don't need to format the disk over and over, you just need to copy the iso file to the USB drive and boot it. You can copy many iso files at a time and ventoy will give you a boot menu to select them. Both Legacy BIOS and UEFI are supported in the same way. 200+ ISO files are tested.

@pcrock Does this do persistence by adding to the iso? I run Puppy a lot for usb.

@Shufei Doubt it. But I've never used it, so I'm not the best person to ask. I'll probably get around to it some day.

@pcrock it is an amazing project but unfortunately you can only boot the ISO image but you can't install an OS from that image if you have more than one ISO file

@pcrock Well, just found where my 1st proposal for the fosstodon donation will go! 👍
