    I give the developers of Puppy Linux a lot of credit for coming up with
    something different, unusual and quite functional.

    I've used Puppy and it works rather well, especially on older machines.

    | Puppy Linux version 4 is a good choice if you're looking for a portable Linux
    | OS, writes reviewer Jack Germain. You can load it onto a thumb drive and run
    | it from multiple PCs, taking all your personal settings with you. Its tiny
    | size comes with a few shortcomings, however.

    Puppy Linux 4.0

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | The rest of the software appears to be unchanged from my last review. Again,
    | I like Puppy Linux and I think they continue to create a good lightweight
    | distro with lots of programs. It seems to be very functional - unlike other
    | lightweight distros it appears to have a program for each task you might need
    | to do.

    Puppy Linux 4.00 is barking up the right tree

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | In summary, the new Puppy 4.00 release is the cat's meow. Puppy Linux 4.00 is
    | fast, reliable (on my systems it ran for days with no issue), has good
    | wireless support, new scanner tools that work well, all the necessary
    | multimedia codecs, and has a minimalistic yet usable approach that allows
    | older computers to be functional machines again. Puppy also excels as a
    | rescue CD or OS. Puppy also has good documentation already built in for new
    | users and has active online forums.

    How I Found Puppy

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | I debated long and hard about adding anything to Puppy 4.00 as I believe it
    | really is fine the way Barry created it, from an aesthetics view point. EZpup
    | 4.00 was really just icing on the tasty cake. I can't thank Barry, the
    | developers (especially MU, NathanF, rarsa and Pizzasgood in the early days
    | and now Zigbert, Dougal, tronkel, tempestuous, and all the others I haven't
    | mentioned) and the Puppy community (especially Lobster) for welcoming me to
    | the kennels and supporting my efforts to give back a tiny portion of what I
    | have received from this remarkable piece of software and the great people who
    | support and use it.

    Lessons learned from Ubuntu

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | While wandering the Ubuntu site (www.ubuntu.com) to take a look at the new
    | Hardy Heron / 8.04 LTS version, I went all philosophical and tried to think
    | of any lessons that the Puppy Community could learn from that of Ubuntu. Now
    | please note this is not a dig at the Puppy Community, we are one of the best
    | out there, I'm just taking a step back and pondering to myself.
    |
    | So anyway here we go...
    |
    | There are of course already things key to the Ubuntu community that Puppy
    | does well. Support in the forums is to a very high standard, as is the
    | development of individual programs.

    Puppy Linux 4 gets new bite

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | Its been been six months since Puppy Linux 3.01 was released and today Barry
    | Kauler announced Puppy 4.00, aka Dingo. Clocking in at a minimal 87MB
    | download, Puppy 4.00 is a lightweight desktop Linux alternative ideal for
    | low-end machines, or for users who want a little less clutter and more speed
    | from their desktop.

    Puppeee: Puppy for your Eee PC

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | The Asus Eee PC ultraportable comes bundled with a version of Xandros as its
    | operating system. If you would like to try a different Linux distro on your
    | Eee, there are plenty of options to choose from, including eeeXubuntu,
    | EeeDora, ZenEee, *EeePCLinuxOS, and Puppeee. The latter is based on Puppy
    | Linux, a tiny Linux distribution that sports a few unique features that make
    | it a perfect candidate for use on machines like the Eee PC.

    Puppy Linux 4.0 on a Dell Inspiron 1150 Review

    ,----[ Quote ]
    | In conclusion, if you are looking for something different I would give Puppy
    | a try. This version is all built from source to maximize speed. Every program
    | on my machine seems to open instaneously. Even with Compiz functionality
    | turned off in Gnome, my Ubuntu install is no where near as fast. There are
    | many features in Puppy that are lacking in other distributions. Installation
    | to thumb drivers, remastering your own custom cd, and wizards to aid new
    | users are just a few.
