Sorry that I'm asking such a simple question, but I couldn't find an easy to understand answer out there. So, if anyone can/wants to help me:

What is the difference (in performance, space used, etc, but without going into detail, just the basics so I get the picture) between running Puppy Linux from a Live USB Flash drive, or running it from a USB Flash Drive with a frugal install?

Thanks in advance!

Read here for an explanation of full versus frugal.

A USB setup IS frugal because it just contains the core Puppy files.

You need to explain what you mean by "Live USB vs Frugal Installation".

Installing to usb might be preferable to installing to compressed ntfs. I don't have first hand experience at either. I have always used save files.
Cheers
Edit: I have always booted Puppy from cd.

By "live USB" i mean using, for example, unetbootin to create from the puupy .iso a bootable USB flash drive, and running it just like that.

From frugal install I mean this:

Slides 21 to 33.

I hope this makes my question easier to understand.
Thanks!

Both methods are doing the same thing - creating a bootable Puppy USB drive

Oh... reading those instructions (me, beginner in all of this) made it look like it was a somehow more "complete" or "full" install, relatively speaking.
Thank you for clarifying this for me Smile

Happy new year!
