" Puppy Linux was and is one of my favorites, a distribution that's not only tiny and lightweight but remarkably full-featured. Now in its 4.1.2 incarnation, it crams most everything people need into a mere 100MB package, with additional software available separately and a wide variety of community-remixed editions for even more-specific needs. It's also shaped up as the near-perfect way to rejuvenate older notebooks, since it requires very little in the way of space or system resources to run well. "

That is a very fair round up of what is out there
(incidentally highlight your URL and click on URL to make it a link
- just roll over URL to get another option Smile

I value familiarity and so even though I do the odd bit of distro hopping and have tried all the distros mentioned apart from Gentoo (too much time fiddling).
I now prefer to distro hop amongst puplets.

Puppy
Linux - but friskier

Fellow Puppy Lovers,

Desktop Linux featured a nice review of MiPUP2 by Dave Dibble. Though he only explored one puplet, Dave describe how flexible Puppy Linux is. From which, various puplets are made.

That is a great review and Dave Dibble has done his homework. His conclusion:
Quote:
No other Linux distro does things like this


Too right. Puppy is not like another Linux.
The kernel is the same.
The programs are the same but the implementation is superior in Puppy.
Those using Puppy know that. This is the first time I have seen a reviewer acknowledging this aspect.
I will be looking out for Dave's and other reviews here

Puppy Linux
When only the best will do Smile

Quote:
Puppy 5.x presents some big enhancements over previous versions. It was created from Ubuntu packages through a new tool inventor Barry Kauler calls Woof. Woof builds Puppy from the package repositories of various Linux distros. Right now the supported distros include Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, Arch, T2 SDE, and Puppy.

The result is that Puppy 5 runs any Ubuntu or *.deb package! This opens up the whole word of Ubuntu and Debian applications to Puppy. Prior to version 5, you could only install apps from Puppy's own repository. While this repository contains hundreds of common Linux applications, enough for most people, it does not compare to the thousands of free apps now available in the Ubuntu/Debian repositories.


Does a pretty decent job (compared to other reviews) explaining things imho.

PS: i noticed the last post dates from 2009, i hope this is still the right thread to post links to reviews.
