Well, it took a long time, having to download the files… the instructions were not clear… I’m not sure I checked the right boxes in Step 4, as most items were not explained… and I STILL have no idea how you mean the use of the word “persistence”, have never seen that in software docs.

Persistence means that it will save whatever changes that you make to it (i.e. install software, etc.), vs a Live CD that will lose settings when you reboot.

ı prefered to use ubuntu than others, I enjoy learning new things about it, but with your help developing in ubuntu will be very easy…thanks…
