[News] Good Review of Puppy Linux 4.0

Hash: SHA1

Puppy Linux 4.0 on a Dell Inspiron 1150 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| In conclusion, if you are looking for something different I would give Puppy 
| a try. This version is all built from source to maximize speed. Every program 
| on my machine seems to open instaneously. Even with Compiz functionality 
| turned off in Gnome, my Ubuntu install is no where near as fast. There are 
| many features in Puppy that are lacking in other distributions. Installation 
| to thumb drivers, remastering your own custom cd, and wizards to aid new 
| users are just a few.      



Battle of the Minis (The Rematch): DSL vs. Puppy

,----[ Quote ]
| Conclusion:
| The final score was close, with Puppy Linux emerging triumphant yet again.
| However, DSL should not be underestimated because it showed us that it has
| the capability to beat distros that are much bigger in size.


Top 5 Tiny Distros

,----[ Quote ]
| I was cleaning up my /home partiton when I noticed I had several tiny distros
| hanging around waiting to be tested. So I thought this might be a good time
| to write an updated Mini-distro Roundup. Unlike last time, the five
| contestants are all less than 88 MB in download size. The five contestants
| are CDlinux 0.6.1, Damn Small Linux 4.3r2, Puppy 4.0rc, Slitaz 1.0, and
| Austrumi 1.6.5. All of these are the latest stable except Damn Small and
| Puppy, that are release candidates. So, we'll cut them just a bit of slack in
| the stability department if need be.      
| [...]
| And of course that honor goes to Puppy Linux. I found it probably to be the
| most complete and definitely the most functional. Being able to use my
| wireless ethernet just really impressed me. And I've always been impressed by
| those Puppy tools. These guys are writing their own software instead of using
| others' in many cases. I think that's cool.    
| So Puppy wins this competition today. They placed very high last time as
| well. They kept improving while others remained stagnant and even found some
| new competition. I wonder how things will look in 3 more years.  


Puppy Linux 4 gets new bite

,----[ Quote ]
| Its been been six months since Puppy Linux 3.01 was released and today Barry 
| Kauler announced Puppy 4.00, aka Dingo. Clocking in at a minimal 87MB 
| download, Puppy 4.00 is a lightweight desktop Linux alternative ideal for 
| low-end machines, or for users who want a little less clutter and more speed 
| from their desktop.    


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.     



Flipping the Linux switch: Penguin on a (USB) stick

,----[ Quote ]
| Ever wish you had your whole desktop on a flash disk? You know what we mean, 
| you take a spreadsheet up to your 'rents, and you realize that they have no 
| program to actually open your spreadsheet with. Or maybe you hop from 
| computer to computer in several offices, and hate the fact that every 
| computer you work on is just different enough to make it difficult to get 
| things done.     


Puppy Linux 3.0.1 [Review]

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy is a nice compromise of tiny and feature-rich. If only it would install 
| properly on my test machine, I wouldn't have to dock it a penguin. As a 
| LiveCD it's not bad, but its small size shows.  
| Much like similar micro-distros their very nature makes them hard for me to 
| use as a regular desktop, and Puppy is no exception. Although it has a few 
| more bells than Damn Small Linux, I still can't use it for anything other 
| than LiveCD recovery tasks.   


Puppy Linux 3.01 Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Short of the issues I had with WPA, overall, the hardware detection was rock 
| solid, and I'm impressed. If you have never tried Puppy Linux, I would 
| encourage you to give it a go. You may even find that running it from a Live 
| CD or a USB drive is enough to best meet your needs. Because it is such a 
| light distro, all you really need is a persistent directory for settings 
| anyway.     


Puppy Linux grows bigger teeth

,----[ Quote ]
| Even in the less than 100MB ISO, Puppy 3.00 packs an application for every 
| task -- from browsing the Internet and chatting to writing reports and 
| spreedsheets to watching and ripping DVDs, configuring network devices, and 
| monitoring firewalls. If you need still more, Puppy 3.00 can also install  
| every application available in Slackware 12's repository. These benefits more 
| than balance out the distro's minor quirks.    


First look at Puppy Linux 3.00

,----[ Quote ]
| Otherwise, all the applications and the system as a whole offered good 
| performance and stable operation. It could be a wonderful start, especially 
| for anyone wishing to be a little different, someone needing to save space 
| and resources, or those requiring a portable solution. It'd be really great 
| on a desktop with minimal input, and could be useful on a laptop with a bit 
| more. It may not be the prettiest at the party, but it has a great 
| personality.      


An in-depth look at Puppy Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| I've discussed the features of Puppy Linux in this article to show its 
| potential uses. But I've left out one vital fact -- Puppy Linux is just plain 
| fun. The friendly interface, easy-to-use wizards and bundled how-to's are 
| part of this appeal, but it goes beyond this, into how easily you can tailor 
| or even remaster the system. Puppy is an engaging system that comes with the 
| opportunity to participate in a vibrant user community.      


Taking Puppy Linux for a Walk

,----[ Quote ]
| The two main uses for Puppy Linux (or any Linux live CD) are to:
|     * Rescue files from the host PC's hosed hard drive or perform various 
|     maintenance tasks (like imaging that drive) 
|     * Compute on a machine without leaving a trace—like browser history, 
|     cookies, documents or any other files—behind on the internal hard drive 


Puppy 3.00 runs on the $0 Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| It's nice to put in a CD, boot in a couple of minutes and have the Puppy 
| environment I love right there for me. Abiword, Geany, Seamonkey, Pidgin, 
| ROX-Filer, MtPaint. Every one works great and loads quickly.  


Puppy Linux 3.00 released

,----[ Quote ]
| The new version Puppy Linux is released. Puppy is a distribution for low end 
| PCs, designed to run from media like usb sticks. It's size is less than 100 
| MB.  


ReviewLinux.Com: Puppy Meet My USB Key

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux is a great Linux distribution to place on a USB key. It's easy 
| installation instructions make it a breeze to install. From boot up to 
| installation on your key in under 10 minutes. It's just that fast. Puppy 
| Linux 3.0 was released October 2 2007 and I thought I would give a small tour 
| on walking your puppy to the key. Enjoy!    

Version: GnuPG v1.4.6 (GNU/Linux)
