My primary OS is Windows 7. I used Fedora for a while on my old computer, but my new one is fast enough I don't see any boost from using Fedora.

comment Programs open IE, despite Chrome being default browser
@Ramhound - I was hoping to find some way to intercept the script request and send it to Chrome instead of IE.

They must have done something different to force it to launch in IE.

I've added the bit of script that does it at the bottom of my question, as it didn't format properly in a comment.

Well, that disabled it, but now the program throws a "Class not registered" script exception where it would normally open IE.

That's what I would have thought, but if I copy the URL into Chrome, it works exactly the same.

I suspected I would have to do that.

@terdon - I know that well, I used Fedora for a while. It just slipped my mind for a moment.

That's exactly what I'm having issues with: corporate software. Hopefully someone has a way to change it, though; a workaround of some sort.

comment What downsides are there to running an OS off of a flash drive instead of a hard drive (USB 3.0 and 2.0)
@DaveM - While speed is one factor, and based on the answers appears to be the most significant one, I was curious about anything on a flash drive impacting OS performance, not just read/write speed.

Oh, I was thinking about the read/write speed, but I forgot about the wear. Guess I'll probably end up just installing portable programs on it instead.

comment how to prevent local user from rebooting/shutting down when i'm ssh'd in?
Oh, I see. Sorry, I misunderstood. I thought you were questioning the concept of other methods besides a command line reboot.

I mean from the menu in the GUI. Or is this a distro without a GUI? I don't have a ton of experience with the various flavours of Linux.
