It can be used to create a Multiboot USB Flash Drive containing multiple operating systems, antivirus utilities, disc cloning, diagnostic tools, and more.

[40:24] Linux Games: Gridwars – The gist of this game is simple: You are placed on a screen and you must control your ship as a never-ending horde of objects come at you.
