Lighthouse Pup is a versatile, constantly updated Puppy Linux. Tazoc writes in his home page:

Lighthouse is a quick and easy to set up, full-featured operating system. Derived from PuppyLinux, it offers several media players, WINE and WINEtricks, GIMP image editing, multi-user support, a choice of window managers and Gslapt package manager. Optional: KDE ('K' Desktop Environment) and Compiz-Fusion eye-candy and accessibility components. Modular design supports up to 40 concurrent SFS software combo-packs including Lighthouse Mariner, Voyager, KDE, OpenOffice, Opera, GoogleEarth, Kompozer, Kdenlive and Bibletime.

You can download the new as well as old versions of LighthousePup (see 4.1.2 series and 3.01/2.15 series - lower numbered series will be suitable to very old PCs).

Tazoc continues: From the start of Lighthouse Pup in 2007 I've tried to make the software pre-configured and tuned for a pleasant experience, including a variety of popular Linux applications and building on the agility and adaptability of PuppyLinux. The feedback and great ideas on the Puppy forum have really improved and expanded Lighthouse Pup, and I'm grateful for that.

Lighthouse is great but there would be one thing that would transform it from just 'great' into 'God of Dogs', at least in my neck of the woods: a build that includes VirtualBox configured and running without the need for endless and fruitless tweaks. A system that would suit all needs that could be used on any machine without leaving a footprint all sitting on a little microSD card that could be hidden in a false tooth (not that it would need to be hidden in a false tooth of course.....)
