I don't know why you couldn't run it on a flash drive, I'm running
OpenSlug and a full-blown Debian off them.
The conventional wisdom is that a flash drive will wear out quickly
as it has a finite number of write cycles available. I take care to
not swap to them and mount the filesystems with "noatime" and I have
yet to have a flash drive fail, but it's only been 6 months or so
since I moved from the small hard drives, so it's not really a fair
"Noatime" might cause trouble with some applications as well, depends
on what you're doing.
So we've moved from a discussion of 1 TB hard drives to small flash
