    Thanks. I'll have to backtrack a bit on the next one (Lite Speed) due to conflicts in release goals.

    This time I wanted to make all distros have USB persistence without requiring the users to (1) figure out how (2) take the time to do it. I also wanted to have both distros and persistence files fit on an 8GB USB flash drive. As a compressed archive, that's doable but not when uncompressed. I had to drop the older Knoppix, Puppy Studio 4 and Puppy Rescue distros from this release. For those with 16GB USB flash drives, I will probably provide a Google Drive link to add-on ZIP-EXE files that will directly update the release.

    Although installable on hard drive, no matter what I tried, I also could not find a way to make the USB Android 5.0.2 distro more than a "no save" non-persistent demo.

    I may bring back Puppy Rescue to the mix if I can but without USB persistence. You probably don't need that anyway for its intended use.
