" Be careful about using it if have to use extra video drivers."

Just curious -  would this be mostly nvidia drivers? My machines tend to need Radeon drivers, and the open source ones seem to work very well. So I assume there would be no problem for my driver updates and the kernel. Am I correct in that assumption?

This article was both entertaining and insightful. You know it's going to be when it starts off like this:

Patrick Brown reminds me of a really bad boyfriend. The more you find out about him, the worse it gets. There's something sneaky and sharp about the way he operates. His taste for age-inappropriate women is a little creepy. Everything is always all about him. Add it up and he's just too weird. So you break up with him. But he won't go away! He busts back into your apartment and demands another chance. You give in. You wonder if he's going to boil your bunny.

Thanks, Fox, for the link and the info about it working with OpenSUSE, too. I wasn't aware that Tumbleweed could boot to a live ISO either. Be careful about using it if have to use extra video drivers. It's rolling release including kernel updates and external video drivers are usually compiled against a particular kernel.

Etcher also worked successfully in making a live USB with an openSUSE Tumbleweed iso, which I tried today. I have yet to find any Linux distro it doesn't work with. Incidentally, I have used the Linux version of Etcher in all my attempts; never tried it in Windows or MacOS though I suspect it would work the same in either.

You might want to check that link, Buster. It leads me to an Apple site dealing with mail.

( Edited out part of an email I sent to a friend in Ottawa!!!! )

Apparently this is what Mint uses under a different name. Used it many times. Zero failures! Also it's beyond simple, and pretty quick.

Just for fun I tried it with openSUSE Tumbleweed and it worked OK. I didn't know until now that Tumbleweed has a live version, as openSUSE Leap does not. Now that I know, I'm curious whether it will boot up on my Late 2015 iMac without that 4-5 minute delay.

Incidentally, I made the Tumbleweed iso into a live USB using Etcher. Etcher is really excellent; there is no live USB I have tried to make with it that didn't succeed, and I always do it while booted into a Linux distro, not Windows or Mac.

In case you're interested, here is the link to the item on Newegg's site.
