In the April 10, 2014 issue of the Windows Secrets Newsletter, columnist Fred Langa gives Puppy Linux a nice plug. A reader asks whether the Android-x86 .iso is bootable on a PC. Langa explains that it is (assuming compatible hardware) but that it would be better to just run a standard Linux distro. After the obligatory mention of Ubuntu, he goes on to say:

"At the other end of the spectrum, Puppy Linux is one of the smallest and complete versions of Linux available. At less than 100MB, it fits on and can boot from even tiny USB drives. It's also incredibly easy to set up and use. And the small size means it runs great on older, slower (e.g., XP-era) PCs. If you're new to Linux, Puppy Linux is about as painless an introduction as you'll find. You can get a free/donationware copy of Puppy Linux at the publisher's site."

I think Fred was talking about the publisher's site as the publisher of Puppy at http://www.puppylinux.com.
There are links there to get puppy linux.

Thanks for your comment, 8-bit.
You and me, we know that there is no recent Puppy less than 100MB
and we know where to download all of them.

My question should have been read as "is there a link to ...." in his newsletter
...and where is that "less than 100MB" Distribution.

But Fred seems to share his (limited) knowledge about Puppy for $$$ only. Laughing

Yes, Langa provided this link:
http://puppylinux.org/main/Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm

Clearly his knowledge of Puppy is a bit dated, but I'm not complaining....

As for the "paid subscription" bit, the subscription is to the Windows Secrets newsletter itself, which costs WHATEVER YOU CHOOSE TO GIVE -- there is no set price.
