try to get schools to use it if they have old crappy computers.


School's just extort more Tax money Mad - THINK OF THE POOR LITTLE CHILDREN?
They have to get the newest latest copy of windows or it hurts the children.

I offered that schools use it but got the government run-around.
we'll look into it or they get new hardware (+solfware) every two - three years.
ect...

I offered to give an "linux PC" to an church but got turn down.
Worried about their networks safety.

Do you guys talk to people and discover the majority don't know what Linux is, they've heard the word?

I ask because I haven't conducted a 'personal survey' since a few years back

1. When I mention Puppy Linux to people in passing [I take every opportunity to do so]...
No-one has ever heard of it. Sad

2. My wife and daughter [and son and his wife when visiting] go on the web using Lupu-526->Firefox-3.6.18 because that live CD-RW is in the drive at all times. Very Happy
They have no problem using it.

3. My son and his family moved to London last week, and he is trying to fix his laptop [restored the XP factory default install, but it's not working well], and get his desktop set up for use.
So he began making use of the Multipup CD-RW I gave him some time back, together with the matching copies of my own pupsave files I gave him.
At this point he has Boxpup-431 in use.
I'll give him a copy of my Lupu-526_CD-RW+Lupusave when he comes up here from London for a week beginning next week.
His Dell_Inspiron_6400 trackpad->[flickering] and keyboard->[mistyping] are malfunctioning in both Windows and Puppy.
Anyone know how to fix?

Pretty much a similar reaction here.
My car wears a big Puppy Linux sticker stuck on the rear window, and i sometimes wonder how many motorists will Scroogle it..

Hello everybody
I am from Serbia and 52 years and I think that good manners needs to write
something sometimes
So hi
I think this is my first post here because I do not know much about linux
to help growing Puppy which I allready used more than a year,like my sons two and my
wife too.It is wonderfull and enjoyfull and I feel very comfortable with Lucid 525.I
try to introduce to a few friends with half succses.
We have linux comunity and it is developing everyday but it is minor compare with Windows .
So we have some problems sometimes with our cirilic letters but we solve it with
good help of Dejan 555 because we share the same language I think
Long live PUPPY

Yes! How strange is that?

I am going to try that on my Telstra customers XP comp,
with Teamviewer, and see if it works for her.

I've been trying for years to get my school to try Puppy. I have even installed Puppy on PI and II's but they look at some school with Windows laptops and they say - "We want those." Even though we don't have the money to purchase laptops, Vista or Win7. What's a computer teacher to do?

Very Happy Hello,
I also have tried till I`m blue in the face..
I sometimes think if I told them it cost TWICE as much as Windows, they might listen... Rolling Eyes
I could list the reasons, but we all know them well....
Just seems like a no-brainer to me...
Maybe that`s the problem... Wink Wink

This is surely one of the problems. But if you remember: vegetables does not have a brain.

Another problem (imho) is the following:

Most windows users i know are criminals. I call them criminal vegetables. Surely 90% of them (that i know) did not have a legal copy of xp, vista or win7. All the way them are using programs like firefox, vlc etc.pp.

Some yeas ago (it was in my long-term-offline-time) i asked somebody for a driver for an older 8-channel audio card. He grabbed the driver out of the www and burnt it on a cd. But this was not all he burnt at cd. He burnt also win me on this cd (while i was working with win 98, a legal copy!).

I am sure, if it has been possible, he would burnt the hardware as well on the cd.

So we not only should tell them it (puppy) costs twice. We also should tell them downloading and using puppy without registering is illegal. Perhaps there will be a rush for puppy linux.
