Gratitude is an Action

I want to offer a genuine 'thank you' for your work - all of 'you' collectively. I wish I had some of the skills members of this community have, and I am grateful those who do have the skills ... share them. I have different skills (not a coder) and will do my part.
In these days ... these times - it is essential good average people not only have viable alternatives to Windows, etc. - it's important to [both] get the word out and support those working to keep it all going.
These [windows, android] operating systems are data finding, and data sucking, monstrosities(!) and are not good for our society as a whole.
I kept muttering ... 'one day' ... . [I will install and learn linex or etc.] but I was just too lazy. I let Google, MS, etc. continue tracking me and taking my data ...in exchange for their shiny, sweet, 'candy'.
Sheesh, consumers don't even 'own' Windows copies any more! NO rights ... no warranty (I mean really - our terms or the highway) ... . And, for most of the world ... there is no decent alternative.
Enter Elive!
I am old enough to remember 'big brother' and if we knew then what was coming ... we'd have pushed back much harder [generations of 60's].
I have not even used this OS yet - right now I need to see if I just move the image to the usb drive or if it has to be 'unpacked' (by some app) to the usb drive. I am confident though - in its application and usability. [Great site!] I will help when and where I can ... .
This is genuinely something of use to people; I wish more people understood its value. I invite you all to do what you can to share this alternative; and, explain its value. I will do the same.
Thanks,
jerry

First all welcome to Elive.....you won't regret it once you are up and running.

Be aware that simply copying over will not suffice. You need to "write" the image to the flashdrive to have it bootable.
Three are GUI and commandline tools for that in Windows and Linux.
See:

Don't hesitate to ask here, on the forum if you get stuck in any way

@yeswedeliver welcome to our community,

nice initiative that you're looking for, personally, myself I'm also trying to be as much anonymous as possible because my personal data are not for profit of big companies, so I use Elive and slowly I try to use as much services as possible that provides myself the highest degree of privacy that a newbie like me will be able to get. I have (and you too) the big help of all members of this forum which their knowledge are higher than mines.
