Pros :Fast and reliable.
Cons : wacom tablet bamboo works as a mouse and not as a real tablet (no zoom, no rotation, no pressure).
Can't find the driver for it.

Small, fast, powerful plus comes with gcc compiler to compile source code into executable binary program that usually works. I successfully compiled lots of mplayer versions from svn as well as the outdated release version and its specifically tailored for my laptop.
Not all source code can be compiled successfully but majority seems to have no problem.

Very Lightweight and FAST, but still filled to the brim with useful tools, utilities out of the box. Multimedia and Networking work straight up.
Most programs are compatible and frugal installations can be backed up and reloaded within minutes, not hours.
However, some esoteric programs may not work correctly, or require extensive configuration/re-compiling.
-Easy to restore
-Not all linux programs may work
-Basic UI (Can be an advantage for POWER users)
-Basic File manager (Can be an advantage for POWER users)

Puppy doesn't have many programs in its repository, but it's one of the best choices for a live USB key, excellent for basic use and recovery, lightweight and very customizable.

Canadian French keyboard support is bad. Would like to have last version of python supported in a pet or sfs with numpy,scipy and matplotlib

Slacko is my go to distribution for live linux. It is just so simple, lightweight and yet fully-featured.
