I'm looking for a light linux distro for some ruby on rails development. I want to be able to work from different computers so a Live USB with persistence seems to be a good solution.
I am currently working with Ubuntu but I find it a bit slow, I'd like to give Porteus a try because it seems very proficient Before I start I have a few questions (and you'll probably help me better than myself tinkering with it) :
- - Do you think the distribution is well suited for this kind of development (Ruby on rails) ?
- Is the hardware compatibility as good as ubuntu ? ( I run it out of the box from 3 different computers)
- Is there any kind of workspaces management capability ? I really like this feature
- How can I activate the persistence feature ? How much space can I use with it ? (I'm currently stuck to 4 Go with ubuntu)
