Old stuff everybody knows ;-P
Obviously not everybody. Lots of people are not XFCE users.
It is not related at all to XFCE or to any desktop. It is more low level and runs
I was attempting a pun at you but you didn't see it :-)
It is done on the XFCE image and not the others, because the XFCE image is
not an installer, and its purpose is to be used as a live sytem for rescue

On the USB stick. Repurposes all the free space

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
