I have tried several Linux distributions, primarily lighter ones, but some more well known. Fatdog64 is small, fast, & has many more features than I would have guessed ootb, with many additional packages available. I find it very satisfactory, but there are various rough edges, leading to minor inconveniences.

It's only "fat" when compared to other puppy derivatives (or TinyCore Linux) that pre-install a less complete selection of programs. Non-geeky folks (grandmas, young kids) whom I've recommended it to, or have shown 'em how to boot from pendrive, have all reported that it is comfortable to use. My rating here of 9, rather than 10, is _ONLY_ due to finding some gaps in "just works" audio hardware autodetection.

There's also a "FatdogArm" build, which (from what I've read) supports: Cubieboard ===== Odroid-U2, Odroid-U3, Odroid-XU3, Odroid-XU4 ===== OLPC XO-1.75 ===== OLPC XO-4 Touch ===== A10/Mele A1000 ===== Pandora ===== Cubox-i i2 and i4pro ===== Google Nexus 7 (2012 edition) ===== Raspberry Pi 2, Raspberry Pi 3

I was very pleasantly surprised by this distro. Everything seemed to work properly, at least on MY laptop and - the distro was very fast as well. There was a good repository to choose bits and pieces from and the savefile even kept it. Keep up the good work and please - keep it going !!
