Which way of referring to Ubuntu bootable media (i.e. written from the
.iso to a device) is best?
- Live CD
- The traditional (generally used), but users have asked whether a 'CD' is required.
- Live USB
- Newer (more modern and realistic), but also has a similar issue to above (asking if they can instead use a CD)
- Live system
- Should be fairly straightforward (referring to any 'Live' media), but is not as well known (or used)
- Ubuntu bootable media
- Should have next to no confusion in meaning, but newer users may not understand what it means
- It's called a "bootable USB stick" in the official install instructions
- Live Environment
- Probably a better version of 'Live system'
Generally speaking, every case which includes a specific type of media (USB, CD, DVD), is going to have users querying about whether you can use a different media.
