Porteus Kiosk Edition, a portable Linux operating system which can be installed on a USB device, CDROM, SD card or hard drive, and based on the Linux Live Scripts, has just reached version 2.0.
Porteus 2.0 (Kiosk Edition) is based on Slackware 14.0 and relies on Linux kernel 3.7.8 and Firefox 19.0.2. It's a 32-bit system which is entirely locked down to prevent tampering with any of the components (including the browser).
Highlights of Porteus 2.0 Kiosk Edition:
• The kiosk edition can be booted only from the iso9660 filesystem, which is read-only by design;
• Shell terminals and VT switching are disabled;
• All personal user data is wiped each time Firefox is restarted;
• The Kiosk edition should run well on a PC with only 128MB of RAM (when the copy2ram feature is disabled);
• The distribution loads into RAM by default, offering a robust and incredibly fast user experience.
A complete list of changes can be found in the official announcement.
