I've been thinking of installing Puppy for a while, and now it looks like the most important SW packages for me are available.

I think this is the way Linux (Unix) was supposed to go. Containing the minimum but easily extensible by just the stuff you need: the "tool-thinking".

I'm also astonished about the documentation. It's marvellous.
Very comprehensive. I should probably tell my friends that use other distros to read Puppy-documentation when in doubt. That might cause some curiosity towards Puppy as a side effect.

Hope it is okay if I don't agree with you here

I never read documentation due to dyslexi words just get blurred out
and I fail to get highly structured texts. But I've been active daily here
now for some 3 years and very many tell us that Puppy is incredibly bad
on documention due to the very fast pace of development by very many
Devs that does not document their whereabout other than maybe in the thread where them presented it.

But sure I can be wrong and those complaining may have their own agendas?

I have to disagree with you Wink
I think the documentation is not that excellent in other distros either.
Mostly it's upto the package documentation to handle those things.

Even the install described the alternatives, but also the consequences of the selections - not usual.

There were some info written about how to set up samba in Puppy - very simple, but just what a basic user typically needs.
