If they've moved on from using aufs, are they using something else that provides the same type of capabilities in a Live session that aufs offers?

Tthe above is a link to a squeeze KDE build, you can install apps in it, even synaptic, using sudo in Konsole,
as i have posted before it is a lot lighter than Mepis is, running the Live DVD, ask Rich about that.
Now this is where I no doubt get into hot water, Mepis when it first came out as a Live CD using aufs it was in the lead, as far as linux distro's where concerned, but over time and new more efficient ways of doing things have evolved, which unfortunately have not been implemented in Mepis, a prime example is xorg, you do not need one full stop. unless you are using proprietary drivers in which case there will be one installed, we are living in 2011 not the 1900's
