Subject description: Needs to save to DVD or USB
 

I searched long and hard but my googlefu is failing me.
I would like a puppy or similar distro that would fly on 32 GB of ram , a LGA 2011 proc that runs at 4.5 GHZ, and has a AMD R9 300 series video card.
Most important it must save like Puppy v5 Lucid. eg asks if you want to save when you shut down and has a save icon on the desktop, which burns to the DVD or USB right then.
I say Puppy because I want this distro to run in ram with the DVD or USB unmounted.
Fatdog64 is a no-go because of its flakiness and terrible save on shutdown.

What do you mean by "its flakiness and terrible save on shutdown? I was thinking of downloading fatgo64 for my dell win 8.1 laptop.

I have no issues with shudowns on fatdog64. The orginal poster may be the person that has been trolling jamesbond. Fatdog64 works well on new machines.

There are 5 that come to mind as being current and matching your hardware which will give you great services on ANY modern PC, as those PCs come robust in comparison to older PCs;
  • Just-LightHouse64 - a Modernized PUP that is feature rich
  • TahrPUP64 - A modernized PUP that continues a Ubuntu flavor
  • Slacko64 - A modernized PUP that is a Slackware flavor
  • EmSee - Auguably the most feature-rich or any PUP ever produced
  • DLNA_Werewolf - A Home entertainment upgrade to the founder, Barry Kauler's, April64
Booting any of the above and in use, you will see much of the "traditional PUPPY Linux in the look and feel and internal structure" of any prior PUPPY Linux system you may have ever used.

The above are some favorites and were offered, here, as they intend to be used in the home delivering great services making it easy to share any information or content you create with your other home PCs or smartDevices. There is NO need to install anything for any these distros to become immediately useful and sharing on the home's LAN with very intuitive subsystems in its Menus.

There are many other additional 64bit distros here in Puppyland which will give you excellent services, as well, in everyday life.

Hope this can get you onto a comfortable path
