Honestly I kind of wish I didn't just see beginner's tutorials on how to get started with Linux all the time both here and on YouTube. We get it. We all know by this time how to get started with Linux and use it. For those that are new, there are already thousands of tutorials for them. We need more advanced tutorials, since most of us, especially here on voat, are well familiar with Linux already.

Just my two cents.

Etcher is a nice piece of software for people who don't want to use terminal, but YUMI and MultibootUSB are even better. You can put a dozen or more Linux distro on a single USB drive provided you have enough space and you can choose between them or just show off because you're a faggot.

You fucking Gnomefag. Go ahead and make the process as convoluted as possible. Here's a simpler two step method that doesn't require a whole goddamned fucking article and applies to writing any ISO file (linux or otherwise) to any USB drive:

  1. Download any ISO file

  2. Run command in terminal: dd bs=4M if=/path/to/isofile of=/dev/sdx status=progress oflag=sync

You missed the point. The article uses Etcher which is cross-platform, dd isn't and wouldn't help someone move from windows to Linux.

Etcher is easy to use and almost impossible to make a mistake with. With dd it's easy to use the wrong "sdx" mount to write to which will overwrite the partition table and other data on the drive.

I'm still missing the point.

Or in Windows (easiest method for most folks).

1) Download ISO File of choice (https://manjaro.org/get-manjaro/)

2) Download Rufus (https://rufus.akeo.ie/)

3) Open Rufus, Select USB, Select ISO. Go. 99% of the time the defaults are what you want.

Rufus is awesome. I've tried so many bootable USB making software and the only one that works every time in my experience is Rufus.
