Minisys Linux: Puppy on steroids

,----[ Quote ]
| Although Minisys Linux takes Puppy Linux in a different direction, it does so
| in a clever and gentle manner. Minisys Linux preserves the best traits of its
| progenitor, such as user-friendly configuration and installation wizards and
| the PET package manager, and it adds a few nifty applications and features of
| its own. The killer feature of Minisys Linux is the ability to customize the
| system using .sfs packs, which allow you to set up a system that suits your
| needs in a matter of minutes.

An Old Dog Learns Some New Tricks With Puppy Linux 4

| 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 4.0 on my old laptop: it's getting better

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

| low-end machines, or for users who want a little less clutter and more speed
| from their desktop.


Puppeee: Puppy for your Eee PC

| 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.


A New Puppy Is Born

| Although the Productivity Sauce blog is all about, well, productivity, I'm

| some time, and it helped me to be productive wherever I went.
