Put Kubuntu on a USB from Windows

Put Kubuntu on a USB Flash Drive using Windows: Kubuntu is a fork of Ubuntu, offered by Canonical Ltd. It utilizes a KDE desktop environment. KDE is often preferred over Gnome for its visual appearance and Windows familiar functionality. Once finished, your Flash Drive will act as a Live Bootable USB, that could be used in place of the Live CD. A persistent file can optionally be created for saving and restoring changes on subsequent reboots.
