Make a bootable Linux USB using Linux Live USB Creator 2.9

Linux Live USB Creator is a free yet powerful open-source software for creating a portable, bootable and virtualized USB stick running Linux. LiLi is designed to be used by both beginners and geeks.

Furthermore, if you are a beginner, LiLi USB Creator will let you try Linux for the first time, keeping Windows clean of any modifications. And if you are a geek, LiLi will allow you to test almost any Linux distributions directly from Windows, or just install them from a USB flash drive instead of CDs.
