Isn't is cool?
PS One just need to be careful enough not to lose the USB thumb drive! :-)
The multisession DVD is quite a nice way of doing that as well.
A couple of guys (kirk and PaulBX1) on the developer forum at http://www.puppyos.net/forum
have been working on code for automatically encrypting the pup_save file, so even if you lost your USB key it would be hard for anyone to recover the info inside the pup_save. They reckon it's about ready to go, so you could head over there and test one of their versions for them
