Yeah, I'm finding that our myself. Even after I expand the OS's partition over most of the stick, it's still very slow, especially when running a browser. I made a mistake; and whenever the stick fails, I'll go back to using a hard drive.
Someone told me that even taking hardware differences into account, I should expect my USB stick distro to run on other computers easily enough. So far, I'm observing that that's not true.
