    Hi and Welcome !

    Go for SLAX. Its one the best distro specifically for USB Live only. Its interface is very slick and necessary packages are pre-installed including media codecs.
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    Welcome to the forums!

    There is no way for someone else to say for certain which one you will like the best, so you are doing the right thing by downloading a number of them and conducting your own tests with each of them. You can check this list for lots of liveCD options and some info about each of them:

    Hope you find something that you like and have fun with Linux.

    It would be also my choice, but also Puppy (and the many derivates (puplets) of it) can offer superb things.
    There are many distros suitable so check them out via LiveCD first and then see the Tutorials

    Hi rhcp1253,

    I would also suggest puppy linux, or linux mint.

    see link below:

    I hope this is of help.
