What are the benefits of using a BOINC-centric version of Ubuntu (such as Dotsch/UX or DClinux) versus the mainstream production version? For the time being, I'm looking at a USB-stick temporary/diskless application. The reason I ask is because I need the updated kernel version to get network support on an Acer Aspire One netbook. Any performance enhancements would be nice for BOINC use, but compatibility is also desired.

At the very least, is it possible to upgrade to the latest kernel version using the updater software? I'd like to start crunching on some additional temporary resources.

The benefits are, that Dotsch/UX includes all the tools by default to configure a HDD based installation, install on a USB stick and also setup a diskless server and several diskless clients over the network.
The distribution is stripped down with the goal of reducing storage space on the installation media, also use less memory and all unrequired daemons are disabled to optimize the distribution for BOINC use.

Sorry, don't understand exactly what you mean.
