They obviously haven't looked closely at Puppy. My own list, based on years of experience renovating old computers, would have been 9 Puppies and Slax!

There are also several errors in the description:

Quote:
a collection of distributions with the same configuration and layer of polish sitting atop different base distributions, namely Ubuntu and Slackware. The Ubuntu versions are really outdated...


I thought about commenting on it, but I don't really have time to correct misconceptions about Puppy (and respond to any replies to the comment). Given the number of "best lightweight distro" lists out there, it could easily turn into a full-time job!

Hi labbe5, RedQuine and All,

Well, labbe5 having found the post, RedQuine having given me the idea, and having a little time on my hands, I took the opportunity to try to clear up some of the misconceptions.

I'm not by nature a joiner nor known for being succinct. So the worst part was having to join linuxconfig.org to submit a post, and wait for it to be 'approved' despite that it was substantially longer than other comments. But my comment did appear. Hopefully, it will both advertise Puppy and this Forum, and perhaps deter newbies from making mistakes we would have to spend time correcting.

Hi.

I have created a short 3m50s video showing BionicPup64 7.9.6, Qtractor 0.8.5 plus some u-he VST plugins in action.

The Video

It shows pretty good, what one can do in Puppy.

Btw: the Video was recorded with Simple Screen Recorder in 2560x1024 size!
Fadings added and rendered in Openshot to 1920x??? .mp4 video.
Rendered to .webm using Kdenlive.

All executed in BionicPup64 7.9.6.

They might should take notice of that wide range of working in Puppy Linux! Wink
