What was a total surprise was seeing that darling of some, Puppy, is its own beast. It just starts and does not look like a fork of anything. Maybe it was originally a Linux from Scratch project and that is why it is so mean and lean.
Puppy is a favorite of mine. Fits nicely on my 1gig usb stick. Take it with me when visiting friends and family. I just plug it in and boot straight to it. People just marvel at it. Makes me look like a linux genius "LOL"

Spent some time checking out that Linux family tree (png) Truly is amazing. I was surprised to see so many Slackware off shoots.
I guess the the one thing I would like to see between the major types is a little easier way to convert an RPM package to a DEB package.
