Puppeee: Puppy for your Eee PC

,----[ Quote ]
The Asus Eee PC ultraportable comes bundled with a
version of Xandros as its operating system. If you
would like to try a different Linux distro on your Eee, there are plenty of options to choose from,
including eeeXubuntu, EeeDora, ZenEee,
EeePCLinuxOS, and Puppeee. The latter is based on
Puppy Linux, a tiny Linux distribution that sports a
few unique features that make it a perfect candidate
for use on machines like the Eee PC.

I bought my daughter an Eee PC 4G. She really loves it. It is small, light, fits into a purse. GOS works fine, comes with a suite of fine applications. It is definite proof to the consumer that Linux is well suited alternative to Microsoft Desktop Windows.

Don't build a Linux distribution that freezes and lockups causing the users endless hours if not days of frustration.

I haven't had any problems wth Ubuntu, been working very well for the past two years.

Ubuntu bested both Microsoft Vista and Apple OSX in pwn to own hacking contest:


Only Ubuntu left standing, as Flash vuln fells Vista in Pwn2Own hacking contest

CanSecWest A laptop running a fully patched version of Microsoft's Vista operating system was the second and final machine to fall in a hacking contest that pitted the security of Windows, OS X and Ubuntu Linux. With both a Windows and Mac machine felled, only the Linux box remained standing following the three-day competition.

Debian security is unsurpassed.

OTOH, yesterday I was passing through Boise City, Oklahoma. Stopped by a Love's gas station. Whilst inside, son pointed it out with a sense of humour. The Windows based Lotto kiosk had the BSOD (blue screen of death) showing on it.

Whereas if you don't mind a challenge, and don't get upset
if it does everything you want and more for free...

Except your time.

My time is worth a lot of money.

I won't waste it trying to debug Linux so that the likes of IBM can profit off of my bug squashing by selling Linux and Linux support contracts.

Aha! The anti-Linux modus operandi reveals itself. The Windows shill expresses anti-competitive sentiment.

You suckers in the OSS world are being taken for a ride. You
just haven't figured it out yet because you are too busy compiling the latest version of Linux.

Nonsense. Ubuntu has worked well for me past 2 years. There are no re-compilings.

Instead, you spend your precious time posting large numbers of
messages to C.O.L.A. Given your previous statement, you must be receiving an income from this task.

Whether he is or not, that I do not know. However, it is plainly obvious he is anti-Linux.

The beauty of Linux is it is succeeding and succeeding well. The unwelcomed off-topic astroturfers think they have won. In essence they haven't. His stupid rants are nothing more than that of a rabid dog.
