  • Rufus: The Reliable USB Formatting Utility
    news.ycombinator.com | 2021-05-06
    UNetbootin has done this since 2007:



    This is barely a year old and comes all, besides a handful of comments, from one account https://github.com/ventoy/Ventoy/graphs/contributors

  • Make a Master Flash Drive
    Ventoy is an open-source tool that is used to create bootable USB drives, but unlike Rufus, Etcher, or Unetbootin, Ventoy stands out of the crowd by giving you a GUI boot menu when you load up the USB. You won’t have to format your disk because all you’ll have to do is simply drag and drop your ISO files of choice, and then just boot into it. The developers even have a large list of tested ISOs so that you can make sure that your disk images are guaranteed to work.
  • Is this possible?
    There's a software called unetbootin. Basically it allows you to boot in a live environment without usb. Maybe it will work for you
  • Any easy to use tools to flash ISO with persistent storage?
    Unetbootin will do it with persistent storage for Ubuntu-based distros.
  • Portable USB Distro Like Tails without all the privacy stuff like Tor
    You might be able to do it with Unetbootin (I think it can provide persistent storage for any Ubuntu-based distro), alternatively MX Linux has a built-in persistent USB creation tool, which is also available as an AppImage for other distros. It's maybe not as pretty as Mint, but it also has XFCE by default so it can be modified to look like it if you want.
