I chose linux because I got tired of handing out $60 - $100 for repairs.. Turns out the repiars were actually virus/trojan removal. I reckon I can't blame the tech unless he knew of linux and failed to notify me about it. Either way it is crazy how much money was spent simply trying to protect & serve my computer...

Now my computer protects and serves me ! I actually almost purchased ZetaOS & Xandros before coming across PuppyLinux.

Promoting Puppy Power

Well I thought I would write about a couple of instances of spreading the word of the Puppy OS.

I told a neighbour that I was using a NEW OS without any Harddrive in my computer. They said that wasnt possible. So I briefly told them how it worked and all the advantages. Their next question was about how you save things, >>USB or CDRW or multisession to the OS disk.
Their reaction was one of disbelief and a whole lot of thinking.

- a fresh OS on every boot
- any compromise of the system is not a prolonged and ,,,,,, reinstall

In another instance, recently I relayed the same to another person, and again a disbelief. A computer system without a Harddrive. When I explained the fact that if the OS can be written to then the system is not secure and if you are compromised that an AV utility does not provide any sense of well being of the system, because as Steve at GRC.com said you cant really know what has happen and the only sense of well being is to do a total reinstall, which I agree with.

This person said that they had never heard of such a thing, and why hadnt they. Ummm... that is a good question. Seems like those that ought to be interested in improving the humanity of computing >>seems to be contrary to alot of interests. The base Puppy OS ought to be included as OEM for any new computer.....period.

Security Concerns In Linux

Part of the reason I am switching to Linux is, from what I have been told, it is superior to Microsoft Windows in the area of security. I think the reason is at least twofold.

Since starting using linux less than 2 months ago I have tried about at least 12 different distros. not including the variations of Puppy itself.

The authors of the linux newbies problem is that he didnt try Puppy.... 5 out of 5 of the newbie rating...:}}

I chose Linux because:

Price
Reliability
Tired of windows and its crashing and bugs
People who use it rave about it and always talk about how if you want to do something in Linux you tell it to do it, and it does it - in windows it goes, are you sure you want to do that - i think you want to do it the microsoft way and im gonna force you to do it that way! you are not as in control of your OS
Speed
lack of viruses etc
It looks pretty I think most x desktops are prettier than windows

I chose puppy because:

It was small, fast
It actually installed on my PC


I stuck with Puppy because I can actually USE my computer with this OS.

Its great and right from the first day I knew I was going to like this better than windows.
