    MX-14.3 LiveUSB Characteristics vs Others

    .
    After using MX-14.3 for a little while, I'm quite impressed with it.
    The following is an attempt to compare it with Knoppix and other LiveUSBs.
    I'd be pleased to get other folks perspective on any of this.

    Code:
    MX-14.3 LiveUSB Characteristics vs Other liveUSB Configurations & Comments
                                       
    Major & Moderate differences:
    persistence on fat32 partition  vs reiserfs   filesize limited to ~4 Gb. 
    menu-driven persistence modes   vs cheatcodes built-in more desirable.
    built-in re-mastering mode      vs none       built-in more desirable; rollback is essential.
    cd-size iso                     vs dvd-size   cd-size is better to build on;
    developer(s) often on forums    vs not        frequent contact can be helpful.
    wl driver for Broadcom wifi     vs b43        more difficult wifi install if wl is chosen default.
    32-bit pae kernel               vs 64-bit     64-bit may be essential to uefi.
    no uefi boot support            vs uefi       having both uefi & legacy support may be more desirable;
                                                              depends on competence of uefi firmware.
    no systemd                      vs systemd    no systemd may be more desirable; 
                                                              fewer regressive surprises likely w/o systemd.
    squashfs for persistence        vs cloop      rolling release may be impossible with cloop
    hard-drive install option       vs 0wn        rolling release fundamentally enables version upgradability.
    rolling-release distro          vs not        rolling-release is more desirable.
    single partition configuration  vs not        ... good & bad ...
     
    
    Small differences & identicalities:
    xfce graphical cpu monitor      vs lxde's     lxde much superior.
    use made of .bashrc             vs not        this is a useful feature.
    xfce                            vs lxde       xfce frame controls don't crash like lxde's.
    analog desktop clock            vs digital    analog clock may be too small to read. 
    whisker menu                    vs ????       whisker menu easier to search for apps.
    install usb from iso            vs same       equivalent options, roughly so.
    mkliveusb option(s)             vs same       equivalent options, roughly so.
    thunar                          vs pcmanfm    equivalent file managers. 
    synaptic, geany, gparted        vs same       identical applications.
    iceweasel, NetworkManager       vs same       identical applications.
    leafpad, ttf-mscorefonts        vs same       identical applications.     
    libreoffice & many others       vs same       identical applications.
