Creating a windows 7 self updating hardware independent image
After end of life there will be no updates, not even security updates, so the connection to internet is no longer secure.
This is only a temporary problem until the new structure of mkusb is installed (you need do it only once).
The other (non-LTS) versions are only supported for 9 months.
Downloading and using mkusb-installer works with several linux distros. This method is independent of the Debian - Ubuntu tools for installation.
It works with Ubuntu and Debian too, but lacks the automatic updating that comes with the PPA.
The intention with 9W-DUS_i686is to provide a quick method to get a portable linux system with the tool dus (mkusb-dus), that can create persistent live systems in Ubuntu and Debian and systems developed from them.
