Get Linux is a free and open source portable tool made by Dev-Fire used to obtain the newest and coolest in the Linux distro world. It compiles over 100 different Linux distros into one handy list so you don't have to go searching all over the internets every time you want to find an ISO file for a certain OS. I know there are a lot of tools out there for ISO downloads and portable distros but what I like about this one is the fact that it's updated monthly with new OS's and upgrades, the GUI is customizable and easy to use, and duh - it's portable. This is a simple program to make your life a little easier, and it's specifically for Windows machines.

The program seems to run pretty fast, and the list of Linux distros is super long- there are a ton in here that I've never heard of (great way to delve into new distros!). In my test, I downloaded Caine which is about 1/2 a Gig. It took about 5 minutes on my ISP. ISO's download into the Get Linux Download folder. Once done, you can take your newly downloaded ISO and fire up Unetbootin or another program similar to that and start up your new OS!

Do you have a different tool for Linux distros? Hit us up -- tips@hak5.org, or simply leave a comment below.
