    Looking for the right distro

    I'm looking for a linux distro that has the following:


    1. Be as light as possible. I won't be using it as my main OS, it's just for testing purposes.
    2. Can be loaded in Virtual Box without installing (Dream Studio allowed this).
    3. Have a UI and automaticaly plugs a USB drive. I had a bad experience mounting/unmounting drives in Ubuntu Server.
    4. Supports python 2/3.
    5. Allows me to write/test my programs.

    If you know any that fits my purposes please let me know.
    Thanks in advance.

    The lightest I can think of of the top are puppy linux, crunchbang, or damn small linux.

    Whether any of these support the python you'll need IDK.
