The promoters of Puppy Linux should tout that it is the best distro for HP thin client PCs. I went through trying to install 9 other distos before successfully installing Puppy Linux on the PC's flash drive. It's great!

The Windows XP it comes installed with is about useless. Only problem I had installing was right out the box the wired network was not auto reloading after reboots. I had to use one of the other network managers to get it to work.

BTW I bought this brand new PC on Ebay for $60. I use it for my wife's PC. She just wants to surf the net.
