MultiSystem is a tool for creating bootable USB thumb drives that give you the option launching multiple ISO images and other built in diagnostic utilities. It can be an invaluable tool for system repair techs. Not to mention the many recovery and repair Live CDs that are available to fix Linux, most bootable Windows repair and anti-virus utilities run from a Linux based ISO. The tech can even create ISO images of Windows installation media and replace a stack of DVDs with one thumb drive. Besides the installable package, there is also a MultiSystem LiveCD that, if I understand correctly, contains some recomended ISOs to install on your thumb drive.

Curse you multisystem

Multisystem and unetbootin support my distro hopping addiction. If you carry a usb thumb drive, Please put puppy linux on it to help your Windows friends. And put your favorite linux distro on it to so them what real computing is like.

I know I've found Multisystem to be very useful and saves on the burning of the CD/DVD disks. I think that I'd use the WebUpd8 post to pimp to others.
