ext4 and partitioning
That looks very convincing.
There's also a follow-up article:

What's The Fastest Partition Scheme On Cheap Flash Media?

Thanks for sharing this.

grub4dos ext4 support
Try new version of Grub4DosConfig for ext4.
grub4dos-0.4.4.v1.6.0.pet
http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=51697
Supports ntfs, vfat, ext2, ext3, ext4 by standalone. Need not grub legacy anymore.

ext2 better?
That is very interesting. I may have to play with ext4. Can we have ext4 as the filesystem within the pupsave and within a truecrypt volume too? I wonder if there is a speedup there too.

I was reading somewhere that ext2 is better for flash drives, because since it is non-journaling there are fewer actual writes, making the drive last longer.
