I know that, for instance, the XFCE self modifies on the first boot. It adds a writable partition.
Adds where? This is big news! I've never heard of a DE performing partitioning or formatting, much less doing so automatically.
Old stuff everybody knows ;-P
Obviously not everybody. Lots of people are not XFCE users.
On the USB stick. Repurposes all the free space at the end of it, so that you can save files on the desktop, even install new rpms.
While a handy result, I don't like the idea of anything /automatically/ writing anything to a partition table.
iianm, currently creating an image on a usb device from an iso creates an installation on the usb device and all that I have created are upgradable and can have configurations and new files written to them and I do not have on with an xfce image on it. ** it is not xfce exclusive capability **
