Sure, I'm a bit dissapointed there's no opensuse live options in this poll. Still, DSL = still rockin' How many systems out there can still fit on a floppy?

I'd use puppy for machines with less than 256MB but more than 64MB. Ubuntu Live for machines with 512MB or more. What would be good for the poor desktops with less than 64MB?

Thumbs up Kanotix

I missed KANOTIX (http://www.kanotix.com/), a derivative from KNOPPIX, which has proven to be a very useful tool - unfortunately updates of the ISO file seem to be released quite infrequently. Nevertheless, special thanks to Jörg Schirottke (a.k.a. Kano) for his work!

I use damnsmall for quik n dirty, but i use granular rpm based my custom iso and I can upgrade firefox with it, unlike mepis which I used to use. Currently I'm testing openSuse 11.1-0 (it's not the live cd version) but getting compiz working and 3D isn't easy....

slitaz. both/either version 1, or their cooking version. in 2008, (and now in 09), is the best thing to happen in linux that i'm aware of, from my perspective and preferences)

http://www.slitaz.org

light, neat, cute, functional, to the point, and, surprisingly expandable and feature packed / full.
