Booting to RAM
Greetings, Folks - been awhile.
I've been off OBSD for awhile now - couldn't get OBSD to boot up on my "now a year old" Laptop. I stuck with Win8 until I was royally hacked to the point my system went down hard. I've a backup; but I'm thinking of giving OBSD another shot - Linux Distros seem to be working well; and figure my plaform's been around awhile for all the issues to be worked out here in BSD-Land.
Once question that I have: Is there an option to boot an Instance to RAM nowadays? I've 8GB of RAM; and have looked into the security aspects of Linux Distros (Ubuntu, TAILS, Fedora) that allow for that option. Being regularly hacked, cyberstalked, and having business prospects interfered (recently with one large software provider) gets one a bit more cautious.
I've glossed over a few diskless OBSD and LiveCD/USB sites here and there after a quick search; but am interested in the RAM loading option for speed (no need to wait for the Live CD/DVD to spin). Until I decide to install my next semi-permanent OS to my HDD, I'd like to try out a Live_on_RAM session (figure I can mount an USB to save files during the session) in OBSD, if possible.
I know Jggimi hasn't updated is LiveDVDs ISOs in awhile - IIRC, don't think they had boot to ram capabilities.
Are 8GBs of RAM enough? I appreciate your feedback in advance.
