    Puppy Linux 3.01 Review

    | Short of the issues I had with WPA, overall, the hardware detection was rock
    | solid, and I'm impressed. If you have never tried Puppy Linux, I would
    | encourage you to give it a go. You may even find that running it from a Live
    | CD or a USB drive is enough to best meet your needs. Because it is such a
    | light distro, all you really need is a persistent directory for settings
    | anyway.

    Puppy Linux grows bigger teeth

    | Even in the less than 100MB ISO, Puppy 3.00 packs an application for every
    | task -- from browsing the Internet and chatting to writing reports and
    | spreedsheets to watching and ripping DVDs, configuring network devices, and
    | monitoring firewalls. If you need still more, Puppy 3.00 can also install ¬*
    | every application available in Slackware 12's repository. These benefits more
    | than balance out the distro's minor quirks. ¬* ¬*

    | Otherwise, all the applications and the system as a whole offered good
    | performance and stable operation. It could be a wonderful start, especially
    | for anyone wishing to be a little different, someone needing to save space
    | and resources, or those requiring a portable solution. It'd be really great
    | on a desktop with minimal input, and could be useful on a laptop with a bit
    | more. It may not be the prettiest at the party, but it has a great
    | personality. ¬* ¬* ¬*

    An in-depth look at Puppy Linux

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I've discussed the features of Puppy Linux in this article to show its
    | potential uses. But I've left out one vital fact -- Puppy Linux is just plain
    | fun. The friendly interface, easy-to-use wizards and bundled how-to's are
    | part of this appeal, but it goes beyond this, into how easily you can tailor
    | or even remaster the system. Puppy is an engaging system that comes with the
    | opportunity to participate in a vibrant user community. ¬* ¬* ¬*

    | Puppy Linux is a great Linux distribution to place on a USB key. It's easy
    | installation instructions make it a breeze to install. From boot up to

    Damn Small's ISO is only 50 megabytes, with an additional
    1.4 MB for the bootfloppy if one needs it. Puppy Linux
    is almost twice that size.

    Well, if you only have such useless gripes to air,
    then you should have order the CD from a CD distributer.
