Thanks to Ralph Sutter for filling in.
I purchased a Mushkin Enhanced Ventura Ultra 120GB USB 3.0 Flash Drive Model MKNUFDVU120GB.
The MUSHKIN is made with the removable media bit permanently turned off. This means that in Windows 8 it will show up as a fixed drive rather than a removable USB drive.
I split the 120GB flash drive into two partitions; one FAT32 and one NTFS.
I installed multiple Linux distributions and other tools onto the FAT32 partition using YUMI. YUMI works great with my Apple MacBook Air mid-2013 laptop.
The NTFS partition is used to keep over 4GB files on it, etc.
My final review of this product is FAST. It allows me to boot into Linux, etc.

Ubuntu AIO (All In One) Project - The plan is to bring Ubuntu and some of the official derivatives (Kubuntu, Ubuntu Gnome, Xubuntu and Lubuntu) on one iso file that can be burnt on one DVD or USB flash drive. Every one of them can be used as Live system, with no need of installation on hard drive, or can be eventually installed on computer for full Ubuntu or any other system experience.
