I run puppy linux off a usb stick and I love it. I also have Ubuntu loaded on another USB stick and can boot to it just fine I can also save my settings.

However my main linux platform remains Mepis. It resides on my second internal hardrive. I just can't justify a reason for switching to Ubuntu. bells and whistles aside Ubuntu just is not as stable as Mepis. I know there are plenty counter views to this statement but Mepis has just always worked for me.

I look at Ubuntu as a slick looking production car. Sadly whats under the hood leaves much to be desired. I will take stability that comes with Mepis any day over Ubuntu's latest and greatest.
