What is the slimmest/fastest Ubuntu update? Size really isn't the issue, but the one that is the fastest

I dont really know what you are talking about but I would say Ububtu 8.04 is probably the slimest and fastest. Or you could go arch which is really fast.

Go with Back Track 3, Ubuntu is bloated.

Use this to install distros on flash drives.

UNR

Ubuntu Netbook Remix

Basically a modded Ubuntu that is designed for Netbooks. Can't get much lighter than that. Looks pretty good if I might add, I am installing on my Acer Aspire One as I speak. Should run fine on desktops and other stuff just fine though.

How easy is Arch to use? Can that use Compiz Fusion?

If you want something that runs fast, dont go for UNR.. thats basically a full Ubuntu, just with a modded front for gnome.. I had it on my Aspire One, and it was slow as hell.. Now I use Xubuntu 8.10, Much faster works great from a usb flashdrive to =D got one myself, to take with me when I dont want to be bothered with a laptop..

I think the main factor determining your speed will be the desktop environment you pick.
