Taking Puppy Linux for a Walk

,----[ Quote ]
| The two main uses for Puppy Linux (or any Linux live CD) are to:
| * Rescue files from the host PC's hosed hard drive or perform various
| maintenance tasks (like imaging that drive)
| * Compute on a machine without leaving a trace—like browser history,
| cookies, documents or any other files—behind on the internal hard drive


And the winner is...

| Mandriva included both a traditional KDE menu and a shiny, usable (tabs
| switch when moused over- w00t) Kickoff menu, a la openSUSE and with a custom
| configuration and artwork.
| Speaking of artwork, Mandriva shipped with a noticeable amount of polish on
| everything.
