    The best I found so far is the Swiss distro Lernstick, popular especially in German speaking countries, but multilingual, based on Debian 9 Stretch, all major DEs included can be chosen on bootup, remastering tools, and similar to ubermix 2 partitions can be setup – system (no writes), user (changes saved but can be easily deletted) + data exchange partition – perfect with kids.

    Plenty of edu apps and games, more than any other distro. Not sure if picaros has more though but that one was extremely outdated with terrible mixture of repos.

        Aaron, few comments:

        When burning the initial installation media – Rufus or similar tool will do (there are 2 isos on their servers – either Lernstick or imediasdotch – standard ~6.5gb and mini ~4.3gb) make sure that your USB is NFTS formatted, FAT32 won’t work due to the fs file >4gb (or you burn mini iso to DVD).

        Then from inside the media created you can make a custom install to the working persistent liveusb or to had if needed.

        • this is a product made by the it department of a Swiss pedagogical University, and is around for years.
        • i was especially surprised that despite tons of software it is still old snappy clean Debian, flying even from USB.
        • there are 8 DEs preinstalled KDE, Gnome, Mate, LXDE, XFCE, Cinnamon, Enlightenment, Console and amazingly they cleanly made sure that only software belongs to respective DE you boot up appears in menus.

        For example pcmancm in LXDE, caja in Mate etc.
