Have any of you guys ever given a recent Knoppix a serious run?

http://www.knopper.net/knoppix/knoppix740-en.html

The idea of a well proven, full-blown/feature-rich Debian based system with a very recent kernel (3.15.6), running - with persistence - from a USB flash drive, sounds quite intriguing. If I can come up with a thumb drive with enough capacity, I might give this new release a try... just, umm, because... Wink

Thanks for the link, darry1966. Cool Holy cow... comes with enough default apps to make your head spin! Might be a slow, bloated mess... or maybe not. Big download, too @ ~4.2Gb.

About 2/3rds of the way there (thank you, McD's free WiFi Smile )...

I've just installed Simplicity 147 Desktop, which is based on Puppy Precise 5.7.1. It's mostly good (and comes complete with the secure Tor browser and Dropbox), except that so far I've been unable to get sound working on it.

(Update, 26th August; I have now got the sound working.)

Subject description: Knoppix 7.4
 

I downloaded the Knoppix 7.4 dvd a week or so ago, I had it install to
a 16gb flash drive.
The flash drive has the OS plus a ten gb space to save any session
changes.
I used synaptic to update the system (708 files), took a long time to
download and install but everything is up to date now.
I used synaptic to install Cairo-dock as well.

It's working well from the flash drive so far.

Edit:I added arandr to setup for 2 monitors.

I thought I would try Linux Mint 17. A big mistake that was. It came bundled on a magazine disk with three other distros. I booted it up on my laptop in the DVD drive. All worked quite well although it did take a long time to load. I've been spoiled with Fatdog.
What I didn't realise until later that night the bloody thing had stolen almost 2G of my mobile data. What a piece of crap. I will stick with Puppy in the future.
Anyone else seen this behavior before?
