I second that! Zenwalk is at least as good as any of the others, and it runs faster and uses fewer resources than any other live distro I have tried.
Zenwalk needs to be on the list.

NimbleX is the one that I installed in my wife's 1GB Kingston USB Flash Drive. She has proven it to be very handy when there was a time that she needs to finished some work at home and we don't have Windows. I don't have Open Office in my box either since I use it mainly for admin related stuff. It was a relief that there was an Open Office module that can be easily installed in NimbleX. Nice work by Bogdan Radulescu and the Slax team.

Damn Small is great for old boxes. Ever since I tried it, I've liked it. I don't usually HD-install it, just use it live.

Mepis 7 changes my mind and vote

Mepis 7 is simply incredible and unbeatable feauture-wise. It is still the best at hardware detection and ease of use and install. It wow'd me. I knew it was great and this was the OS that really led to my conversion into the open source world. Two years of distro-hopping later I return to find it still excellent in meeting my PC needs and then some.

This is a truly robust OS in every sense of the word. And trus me, i have used many from Mint to Pclinuxos, Ubuntu, Arch, Desktopbsd, IndianPre, Sabayon, Vectorlinux, and many more.

This distro is incredible even as a livecd than most.
