Phooey on Tails .. I just installed BionicPup 8.0 and then added TOR browser to it. As far as I know, Puppy Linux is the only Linux distro that can actually save your sessions, settings and such to a CD, DVD, USB, etc. The Tails had a “Persistent” ‘thingie that supposedly would eventually save something (?!?), but on reboots you had to always go thru the Time Zone, clock, mouse (I switch left to right), etc re-settings. Never did get TOR browser to import my bookmarks either. After 3 days, I have moved on to BionicPup ‘n TOR. He’s a little intimidating at first …

I have used Puppy Linux versions for a long time – longer than even Ubuntu. Slacko versions until now, since Slacko hasn’t done any updates since around 2015, I think. BionicPup is the newest Puppy Linux update, according to DistroWatch.

I’ve got it on an old DVD+RW right now, but have used older Slacko versions on CD’s, DVD’s and USB’s – always being able to save sessions, settings and such at shutdown. I’ll break-it-in and then probably move to a USB. Went with Slacko 6.3.2 last night, but didn’t like the internet connect problems and it was just too old – after years of great service and help for me. Yeah, BionicPup is up-to-date and quite fast at everything – other than my slow typing, slow searching, slow learning, etc.
