I want to run Ubuntu from a USB stick, leaving the Win7 or other operating systems unused. I do NOT want to install Ubuntu. I want to use the USB stick in my PC if Win7 produces serious problems, e.g. a virus. I want to use it on computers in internet cafes to avoid leaving traces. My question is whether it is better to use the 32bit or the 64bit OS for these requirements ?

✔ Best Answer
You can certainly run Ubuntu from a USB stick without install:

32 bit is likely to be more widely used if you intend to run it on a variety of computers. It will require you to make the USB stick the first one to boot - a BIOS setting that I doubt is made available from an internet café.

"I want to use it on computers in internet cafes to avoid leaving traces"
Why is this? If it's something illegal we can't help any further.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

I very much doubt that an Internet cafe would allow their computers to boot from a USB stick. They have to protect themselves against people with malicious intent.

As I am often in African countries, which are full of pirated software with all the infectious consequences, I want to protect my work from intrusions. I have no malicious intentions but to protect myself and my work from malware. Thank you for your assistance.
