I am a seasoned and experienced Windows user (like many people here) and I can remember when MS were a ruthlessly nice company (it pays to be nice).

Some Linux distros seem to assume we have been using Unix and then Linux.
Well I haven't. Neither have I learnt how to program in C. I am an end user.

Puppy works for me and I use it most of the time.

Puppy power is about sharing resources and skills. Cross fertilisation and collaboration with other Linuxes. Promoting Puppy on websites, blogs - in our email signatures. Giving out Puppy CD's. Sending a private message to new Puppys welcoming them.

Share the fun - it's more fun. Cool

I have 50 of the 50MB CD-Rs on order... What, oh what, shall I do with them? Hmmm... Wink

John's Opera version is going on as many as I can hand out... Very Happy

I already have a convert at work... He loves the 1.0.2RC disk that I gave him.

Hey - someone turned off Babbs avatar . . .
(bet it was 'im)

Giving Pups away - it's well . . . well it's radical - "I liked the OS so much I gave it away".

Must be a Linux thing. Tux Power.
Are we having fun yet?
Smile

Maybe we should have version numbers and names?

For Example a Puppy you give away (or perhaps a special Valentine Pup)
could be "Puppy Love"

Then we have "PizzaPup" - which I think should come with a "Do not Microwave" option

Then We have "John Murgas Opera Puplet" - includes Perl

Version 1.0.2 might be known as "Puppy NewNuts" as it contains the 2.6 kernel

So what will 1.0.3 be known as?

Giving away Puppys - good plan - JaDy gives Puppys away at Hollywood parties. I would too but nobody invites me, except as a menu item . . .

Me thinks Lobster has me confused with another. Rolling Eyes Or is Lobster just being a playful crustacean? Cool I do not attend Hollywood parties. I do not give puppies away at Hollywood parties. I do not eat green eggs and spam. I do give away Puppies -- Puppy Linux, that is. Wink

Sorry Rev:
I do have you confused with someone who does attend Hollywood parties and has secret powers - maybe someone can remind me who I am confused over? Reveal yourself mysterious Puppy advocate - it is the person who signs their posts "Hail Puppy"

Sorry. I hope I have not got anyone in trouble with the Church. The only heretic around here is me. Many apologies to all good Pups.

Smile

It is not Dr Seuss or the Cat in the Hat incidentally.

Right now I'm running Puppy on a 7.5gig drive on a modified Gateway 466(originally a celeron, upgraded to PIII/733 w/optical drive upgrades) with 96mb RAM. And it runs like a champ. I'm going to upgrade the RAM as much as this machine will take, scrounge a monitor/kb and mouse, and this box will find its way to a lady that has no $ for a computer. Puppy is the schizzle, and just the thing for me, I've wanted an OS that would work well on giveaway computers. I would also like to host the ISO on my website(I'll wait for permssion on that).

I love it!

I think that that quote should be put on the main Puppy web page, along with the others....


It does a good job of conveying the situation accurately!
