Best Linux distro for USB stick?

I assume you are talking about a live boot USB image, so you don't have to
install anything on your HD, you can just run it off the stick. If so,
Knoppix has always been a good choice for a live Linux OS. Lots of utilities
for inspecting current hardware setups and good apps for troubleshooting.
Ubuntu can do a live boot as well, and, while it probably lacks the breadth
of utilities that Knoppix comes with, still has a bunch.
I haven't needed a live boot distro since I ditched PC's and bought a Mac a
year and half ago, but those options should still be relevant.
I have no hardware recommendations, sorry.
