Well, that's what LiveCDs and USB sticks with a running system are aimed
for, to be a lifesaver when your main system cannot boot or is completely
The only "but" I'll say about that Oberon OS is that it will require from
extra maintenance and some learning curve and both things are not coming
for free, that is, they're time consuming while if you have an external
media with Debian loaded on it, being a well-known system, you already
know what to do within the less possible time.
