When To Use Linux Live CDs
Linux live CDs are the best solution to secure online transactions on public computers, but there are a few limitations on when they can be used.
The best conditions for using Linux live CDs are these:
- The Internet cafe doesn't use billing software
- If the Internet cafe uses billing software you will not be able to boot your live CD, unless they give you permission (which is unlikely). If they keep track of your Internet usage time on paper, then this requirement is met.
- There is an "Always On" Internet connection
- Using a live CD is much easier if you are on a computer with a high-speed "Always On" Internet connection.
If those two conditions are met, you can probably boot up your Linux live CD successfully.
