I only use Linux for sending coins, or storing wallets.  I have backups of wallets in multiple location on multiple USB drives.  On those devices i also have the public/private keys.  The linux laptop I use for coins is off at all times, and the wi-fi is only enabled to update the blockchain (when needed).

I never keep coins or USD in an exchange for more than a few hours (send coins in, convert to other coins, or sometimes sell a decline and buy back lower).

The wallets I use to send mined coins are on Windows machines - and they are only used to receive coins from mining activities, then immediately send to the offline wallet stored on the laptop etc.

Would the use of a Thumb Drive to store the wallet be an acceptable alternative?

Would prefer NOT to have to learn a new (to me)  OS.

Agreed, although I hear that Linux has come a long way from their earlier days and from what I read seems to be the go to for mining alt coins.
I too am curious to know if use of an encrypted thumb drive to store a 'savings' wallet is considered to be an acceptable alternative.

we should make a list of all the scammers including user name, ip, and email address....

My negative trust rating is reflective of a personal vendetta by someone on default trust.

I use to trust in people, i had some surprises, but basically most of "us" we are to be trusted.

IMHO.

I heard of a story of someone's BTC being hacked despite all measures being taken, such as Paper Wallet, Truecrypt, and offline access, but they still got hacked.

It does make me paranoid, but I guess that's just some of the risks of using Bitcoin.

Humans are the weakest link in general. I vote we move to a system with robot overlords. And robot workers. In fact, lets get rid of humans and just have robots.

But yeah, a good penetration tester will be a good social engineer too. Charm and a few good words can get you in a private network relatively easily.

The fact that I'm paranoid doesn't mean they are not trying to get me! Wink
