If you manage to squeeze OSGeo Live in less than 4GB, last year's
dealer is announcing 4GB USB unit at 4.50 EUR .
Extras (logo printing + data writing + metallic case + transport) was
about + 3.70 EUR/unit (for a 200 units purchase).
Total, about 11.5 USD -- probably less ordering more quantity.
USB boots & runs very fast, is writable (so you can save, for
instance, your l10n settings or workshop outcomes), and will end up
being a nice, long lasting souvenir / merchandising piece.
