I use Vector not as main OS but for the fun on an old laptop and a server (mainly a MineCraft server for the kids).
My main OS is Lubuntu 14.04.1 LTS, stable and light and easy to maintain.
3 of my 4 kids use Lubuntu, 1 has Windows 8.1 and my wife uses Windows 7.

How big is the stick? assuming 8 gig min

No..there is no live option for the development iso's.. Old School installable operating system

To install to usb you would likely have to have the usb stick formatted for install like a hard drive and install to it like one as well..unetbootin will create a bootable installer on usb not a bootable OS

If you created a dvd and proceeded to install to usb and it did not install the boot loader at the end you could try booting the stick with the dvd: linux root=/dev/sdxx ro (xx is what ever your stick is)

just my take on it..not a good choice for thumb drive linux but an option. It can also be made to work in virtualbox via install, but is best installed to compatible hardware of which there is a vast selection.

knowledge of your experience would be welcome naturally I have not done a direct install to usb but did have the same response installing the bootloader to a second partition rather than the master boot record and booted via dvd no issue.

There are live cd for current standard release you can find it here

persistence is not an option for live usb however it is linux and you are free to make it so if you have what it takes..  Smiley

I cannot get VL64 2.2.6 to install on my USB stick.

Is there a live cd option?  

I tried unetbootin, this works but once booted it operates exactly like the dvd and boots to the vlocity installer?

I also burned a DVD and the installer stops at the very last step when installing to the USB stick

Any Ideas?

The elementary-VL theme in Vector 7.1 is nice and also compliments the wallpaper in VLocity 2.2.6 imho, although a stylistic prerogative, I do not like the line across the panel when row size is increased over 24 in panel preferences. This is due (as far as I can tell) to the image "panel-dark.png" in /usr/share/themes/elementary-VL/gtk-2.0/apps/xfce-panel being 1x24 pixels. If you want to have the blended look without the line ( which appears due to duplication) you can open the image in gimp, select image/scale image and increase the height to 36 or 48 (this increases the width to 2)...click scale and export the image.

I copied the 1x24 image to /home and opened in gimp then exported from gimp to /home, overwriting with 2x36. I then renamed the original image as root for back up and added the new 2x36 panel-dark.png to the folder. I then log out and back in and have a blended panel with out the line until I increase the row size in panel preferences over 36 and so on. you can also edit the blend for a more dramatic effect to suit your preference. perhaps of no interest but I had fun figureing it out. small things amuse and what not.

did not see shutterbug in repository to highlight the area for pics, so kinda hard to see what I'm talking about

Thank you very much for the feedback, jsalpha2. Smiley

That ibiblio link is a mirror of VL package repositories. It does not include "real time" development files or current test releases. The VL 7.2 repo part has been started because a few things are being assembled and tested, and those need a package repo to work with.

Thanks, installed from roarde 's link.  The ibiblio.org doesn't seem to be updated in months.  Everything seems to be working and looking good.

A reminder here:
If you have a fairly recent ISO, you may want to take advantage of the .delta files. That'll save download time. If you haven't looked, the filename of the .delta file explains what it does. Download the delta to the same directory as the previous ISO and issue:
xdelta patch filename-here.delta
