[News] Puppy GNU/Linux Called "Absolutely Stunning"

Hash: SHA1

Puppy Linux - revisited - Absolutely stunning! 

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy is a lean, mean menace. It's simple, light, fast, stable, and 
| beautiful. It offers the users a complete experience out of the box. 
| Configurations are driven by simple menus, without any need for advanced 
| Linux knowledge.   
| Even if you're just a curious Windows user, Puppy is definitely for you. 
| You'll get multimedia support for all sorts of audio and video files, without 
| any worry about installing strange things. And you even have an anti-virus 
| should a need arise. Sharing network resources has never been simpler.   
| The live CD also allows you to perform rescue, backup and auditing of 
| installed systems, be they Linux or Windows, offering you leverage in case of 
| a disaster.  
| On top of all that, Puppy is productive, with a broad range of excellent, 
| useful programs for just about anyone. 
| I have always loved Puppy, but version 4.1 surpasses even my optimism. It's 
| truly magnificent.  



Puppy 4.1: What’s Not to Like?

,----[ Quote ]
| Here is the Desktop which is built on JWM a lightweight but fast desktop
| option.  The graphics may not meet the options of a full blown Linux distro
| but you cannot install a regular distro on older machines.  Puppy will not
| only use less resources but you will find that it is much faster as you do
| not have to deal with all the eye-candy drags…   If speed and the ability to
| run Linux on an old piece of junk is what you need, what’s not to like about
| Puppy 4.1….thanks Puppy developers!

| I was very pleased with Puppy Linux 4.1! The interface was smooth and easy to
| use.

| Puppy Linux version 4 is a good choice if you're looking for a portable Linux
| OS, writes reviewer Jack Germain. You can load it onto a thumb drive and run
| it from multiple PCs, taking all your personal settings with you. Its tiny
| size comes with a few shortcomings, however.


Puppy Linux 4.0

| The rest of the software appears to be unchanged from my last review. Again,
| I like Puppy Linux and I think they continue to create a good lightweight
| distro with lots of programs. It seems to be very functional - unlike other
| lightweight distros it appears to have a program for each task you might need
| to do.


Puppy Linux 4.0 on my old laptop: it's getting better

| Recently I tried one of my fav distro, Puppy Linux, on my very old laptop
| Toshiba Tecra 8200.
| And this time I found a pleasant surprise.


Puppy Linux 4.00 is barking up the right tree

,----[ Quote ]
| In summary, the new Puppy 4.00 release is the cat's meow. Puppy Linux 4.00 is
| fast, reliable (on my systems it ran for days with no issue), has good
| wireless support, new scanner tools that work well, all the necessary
| multimedia codecs, and has a minimalistic yet usable approach that allows
| older computers to be functional machines again. Puppy also excels as a
| rescue CD or OS. Puppy also has good documentation already built in for new
| users and has active online forums.


How I Found Puppy

,----[ Quote ]
| I debated long and hard about adding anything to Puppy 4.00 as I believe it
| really is fine the way Barry created it, from an aesthetics view point. EZpup
| 4.00 was really just icing on the tasty cake. I can't thank Barry, the
| developers (especially MU, NathanF, rarsa and Pizzasgood in the early days
| and now Zigbert, Dougal, tronkel, tempestuous, and all the others I haven't
| mentioned) and the Puppy community (especially Lobster) for welcoming me to
| the kennels and supporting my efforts to give back a tiny portion of what I
| have received from this remarkable piece of software and the great people who
| support and use it.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
