This new poll is slightly updated. However, DSL has many, many options and we are limited to 10 poll answers. Please comment on anything you are using that are not included, example: mkmydsl; webdata for restore/backup; remaster; etc.

Frugal on hard disk, with multiple grub entries.  One starts DSL with no modifications, no restore or mydsl apps, mainly for testing.  One uses persistent home and opt (my main setup).  One for runlevel 2.  A few more for various combinations of mydsl apps.  None of them use backup/restore...just a personal preference to use mydsl instead.

I use CD with backup/restore on flash drive at school, CD only on my desktop, VMware Player on my main laptop (Compal DL70), and a traditional hard drive install on my Compaq laptop.

Most of the time these days I am suing DSL via pen on my Nano.
