    Not sure if this goes into Linux section, because it's intended for Windows users.

    I've written an article reviewing several Linux-based rescue CD utilities, bundled with anti-virus engines by their vendors, plus some advice on security and necessity of anti-virus software in general. As I said, this article is mainly intended for Windows users, and while it discusses anti-virus software, its main goal is to teach you about superior alternatives to security. Read and learn why.

    Hmm. This got me to thinking a little bit. Can we download all of them and create a bootable USB drive with UNetbootin and create a boot menu to choose between them?

    Yes you can, Sardu http://www.sarducd.it/ also talked about here https://www.wilderssecurity.com/showthread.php?t=292555 If not mentioned there be sure to check his forum http://reboot.pro/forum/100/ He updates often with betas and all, if Avira boot stuff don't work it will be mentioned on forum etc. Covers just about everything bootable so expect some bugs, not really possible not to find a use for it though. A "holy crap" program :)

    Now I scan through that thread it seems the dude making program is davidecosta, right below this post, so if he sticks around the more reason to use Sardu.
