I'm a teacher and will ask my students to either bring their laptops with Ubuntu installed with an specific list of packages preinstalled or bring a USB Drive or External Hard Drive with Ubuntu and the packages preinstalled.
For those who are going to bring the USB are two posibilities:
- Install with the Ubuntu's "Startup disk creator" program, and telling it to reserve some space for persistence.
- Boot with a LiveCD and Install Ubuntu in the USB drive.
Then, in either case, boot with that media and install the packages.
So, for my purpose or any other purpose:
- What is the best choice and why?
- Do we have another option? full explanation please.
