I'm building a kitchen computer using an old P3 laptop with a broken screen hinge. Ordinarily I'd do it with one or another flavour of Linux, but I decided to be cute and try Android, as it seems more immediate and more suitable for a computer that'll only have one or two tasks to do. Problem is, said computer only has USB1.1 ports, so loading any OS from a thumbdrive is possible (using Plop bootmanager) but ridiculously slow. Were I using Debian I'd set it to boot and run the OS from the CD, then write filesystem changes in a live-rw file/partition on the thumbdrive, but I'm not sure this can be done in Android. Can it? And if yes, how? Thanks.
