Indeed Innovative
Yes, indeed. I guess the only issue with the latest version (5.0.1) is integrating the File Manager with mounting.

Iguleder's initial work on Squeeze produced a very useful Puppy, and the versions have been updated by pemasu as "exprimo" but the sfs are still named "puppy_squeeze" (now at version 5.x.9).

Comment in R-Pi Board
asb in the R-Pi board has kind words for Guy Dog: "'Guy Dog' looks rather neat http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=72576.

I'm afraid I don't know much about building a minimal distro other than using debootstrap to create a minimal base and adding stuff as you need it, though I expect Puppy would strip docs, unneeded locales etc.

One thing I'd really love an answer to is how much you can gain for desktop usage by going from Debian armel (armv4+, softfp) packages to custom compiled packages for the Raspberry Pi arm1176 (i.e. armv6 and floating point unit). I haven't had a chance to do a proper investigation of this yet."
