With a fresh pristine Wary I can now be online in 78 seconds. Again not bad going from 200 hours to just over a minute. I think I can get it below a minute.

So having withstood the test of time Puppy Linux seems pretty bullet proof to me, even though we run as root.


Not bullet proof. Just never attacked.

If a house has no locks on its doors and it has never been burgled, one cannot conclude that the house is secure, just that it has not been burgled.

and you will see that Puppy Linux does very well. If you have Windows, run the same test from Windows and you'll see the difference in security.

It seems previous post here didn't't take! We'll try again.

If you want to see just how secure your system is go to this URL and run a check!
