Savoring Flavors of Linux: PuppyLinux

,----[ Quote ]
| There are plenty of reasons to 'wow' this 
| distro. One is the footprint size. The live 
| CD ISO file is has a size of just 110MB and 
| downloaded in a jiffy. As advertised all over 
| the web, it can be used on older PCs with 
| small .drives and memory.
| Having said that, I have had some problems 
| trying to revive some older PCs with Puppy. 
| It runs well, however on a P3 Dell (T.800) . 
| Another word of caution is that if you plan 
| to do some heavy weight development on Linux, 
| Puppy may not be the one you want.
