All My Puppy Partitions have AntiX installed side by side. I like both equally.
I have no favorites.

I have tried a variety of different distros since I started exploring Linux a few years ago, but I keep coming back to Puppy.

As a hobby, I restore old hardware and every machine I build has some sort of Puppy so far. The only exception to this rule is my main business machine, which is running Fedora. As much as I love my Puppies, I just can't get the experience I need out of it yet from a business perspective (I'm still working on it though!)

I'm going write some blog posts at some point, but in October of last year, I completely moved my business from M$ to Linux. I still have XP running in a virtual box for ONE application, but as soon as I can get that to run in Wine, I will wash my hands of it forever.

So, yes, Puppy is my favorite distro and the only one I continue to use no matter what.

Yes puppy is my favorite distro, i use it (well choice of now 8 frugal puppy installs) as my main and only OS. I started with XP then got a new laptop with vista pre installed used that for a while them moved on to duel booting ubuntu, eventually wiped vista altogether as it was so bloated an resources heavy and distro hopped around the big distros, settled on xubuntu for a while then moved onto crunchbang linux and now here i am using puppy - i like light weight bloat free OS and puppy linux fits that category and me perfectly.

While Puppy is still not multi-user by default, Pizzasgood created a version of 4.2.1 that had the option to become multi-user.
I am not sure about 4.3.1 but I am fairly sure that 4.4 will be using Pizzasgood's multi-user option when it gets released.


Yes Puppy is my favourite Distro. I do use Ubuntu on the local LUG's machine but am not very impressed with it.

It has not been that way always.

SuperOS back in November 2009 was the best for me.
then I thought that Linux Mint 8 KDE CE was best.

Then it was Puppy Startdust that was best.

Now I think that Puppy 431 Standard is best if one give it the codecs and plugins and pets that makes it as good as or better than the other distros because

Puppy can do frugal install with persistence on a NTFS computer without destroying the integrity of the set up.

So now Puppy are the best except when I have to use programs I have not learn to use on puppy.

I always burn an iso using the windows program BurnCDcc because I am used to how one does it. I use UNetbootin in windows to burn an USB because I am used to how it is done.

Sooner or later I learn how to do that on puppy linux hopefully.

I would say so, I always like the look of myah Os, Jeremiah Cheatham is the developer, nice person to email and myah is also built from scratch, but its not puppy, puppy is real community project thats fun to work with.
my list of favorite os is

1-Puppy
2-Myah Os
3-Linux Mint (even if he doesn't like Christian's, what a dolt) Smile

My fave <3

It's my main OS on my home PCs, I just need to stop being lazy, backup my data and repartition my drive so I don't have so many partitions. Also get rid of that ntfs part. and then set it all linux and make one solid puppy install.

Oh, most definitely!

The only other Linux distributions I've tried- and my experience is admittedly limited here- have been flavors of Ubuntu and Debian, but aside from the prospective Lubuntu, they've all eventually lost my interest or have been incompatible with scores of my peripherals.

Puppy has only had issues with one scanner I have, but that piece of crap has never worked with anything but NT 4, anyway.


Really, I suppose I've not actually become a fan of Puppy Linux; it still annoys me regularly, but it's far less annoying that all the other operating systems and Linux distributions that I've tried. Maybe that will change someday, and I'll find a slicker system, but I'm not holding my breath. Puppy would be a tough act to follow.

I think this isn't really fair towards Clem Lefebre. All he has ever said is that he could not accept Israel's politics towards the Palestinians.

Some rather narrow minds then made the following sophism: " If he's against Israel, he's pro Palestinians, which proves he's against us Christians." Speaking of dolts...

Shortly after the events Clem apologized publicly:

Quote:
From the Linux Mint blog

“Drawing the line
Written by Clem on May 3rd, 2009

As requested, I removed all political contents from this blog. Apologies to the team and the community for the initial wording and for posting it here. I now have a personal blog for this, and as this project has nothing to do with politics, there is no room for it on linuxmint.com.

I fully understand that. I would like to thank all the people, through their emails and comments, who made me realize it. Mistakes are made sometimes and thus feedback, once again, was extremely valuable.”


It could even be argued he acted in a more Christian manner than the "Christians" who attacked him.

I would have to say that (my favorite distro) might be Debian. However,..I am always using Puppy,..(or coming back to it after messing up something). Laughing Puppy is like a "swiss-army-knife" for me.
