    Nice! I carry Puppy Linux in my pocket with me everywhere I go. Very very useful. It usually runs in RAM though so I guess this was primarily for writing data back to the storage medium, which I rarely do. I also need my USB stick to be FAT32 for other reasons.

    How does this puppy compare with Ubuntu or other common distros? Shouldnt it score better? And if loaded in faster, modern RAM it should be really cool. Does it run the benchmarking suite?

    I run Puppy 5.6 on my i5 4570k box with DDR3 1600. It works snappy but the first time shutdown takes unbelievably long.
