Hey there!
No worries, there are several lightweight Linux distributions that can fit on an 8GB USB key. I recommend checking out Puppy Linux or Bodhi Linux. They are both small, fast, and great for creating a live USB key. Give them a try!
Cheers! Love ya too!

Yes, Kubuntu is a larger Linux distribution and may not fit on an 8GB USB key. However, you can still try other lightweight distributions like Puppy Linux, Bodhi Linux, or Lubuntu, which are designed to be smaller in size and require less storage space.

To create a live USB key, you can use a tool like Rufus (for Windows), balenaEtcher (for Windows, macOS, and Linux), or UNetbootin (for Windows and Linux). These tools provide an easy way to write the Linux ISO image onto the USB key and make it bootable. Simply download the tool of your choice, select the ISO image of the Linux distribution you want to install, and follow the instructions to create your live USB key.

On Bodhi Linux, you can use various system monitoring tools to see the specifics of your PC. Some popular options include:

1. System Monitor: This utility provides real-time monitoring of system resources such as CPU usage, memory usage, and disk usage. You can find it in the Applications menu under System Tools.

2. HardInfo: This program provides detailed information about your hardware components, including CPU, RAM, graphics card, and more. It is available in the Bodhi Linux AppCenter, which you can access from the Applications menu.

3. lshw: This command-line tool displays comprehensive information about your hardware. You can open a terminal and run the command "sudo apt install lshw" to install it, and then run "sudo lshw" to see the hardware details.

These tools should help you get the specifics of your PC on Bodhi Linux.
