    I don't know of a lightweight distro with python preinstalled off the top of my head, though there probably is something, but there are a number of live distros that offer persistent USB installs.

    To name three:
    Puppy Linux

    Don't know if it will help, but if you know what version of Python you want to use, you can go to the Search Page over at, drop down to the Package Search section and enter that Python version into the package search field and it will give you a listing of all the distros that use/used that package. You can then cull through the names of those distributions to find any that you might be interested in taking a closer look at.
