Flash was a free (licensed under the GPL v2) customized Linux distribution initially designed to be run directly off a 256Mb USB key or other (similar) forms of bootable flash memory. It subsequently (also) became a Linux distribution that ran directly from a CDROM, typically known as a Live-CD.
Flash Linux has not been updated in almost a decade, and is listed as "Discontinued" by DistroWatch. The website is still available, and appears to be looking for sponsors to restart the distribution. The website was last updated in 2011.
