    Anyone tried Puppy Linux?


    I haven't tried this distro:
    http://www.goosee.com/puppy/

    but it advertises itself as a very fast lightweight one . I'm can't say I'm happy about its attitude towards root but I think it's worth while having a look. I have a spare hard drive of only 247 mb and I cld consider trying Puppy on it.

    Has anyone here tried it?

    I cant say that I have tried Puppy, but I am trying Flonix which is a similar live-boot, minimal spec platform from what I have seen.

    That's interesting. I hadn't heard of Flonix .Let's swap experiences. I hope to have tried Puppy Linux by this weekend

    Radders: a quick update re Puppy:

    It is very fast and fun just for that reason.

    Looks a bit like Windows 95 (really: I felt very strange looking at it)

    Can't so far get on the internet with it: neither of the dialer progs work although my modem was correctly detected on the right port.

    Sylphed, the email client doesn't want to do anything.

    Not yet managed a proper hard drive installl

    I will keep trying, but not very hard as I have other things to do, during this week.

    damnsmall is also good, puppy does look better but I really like dsl's ability to click and add programs to the system
    Operating System: GNU Emacs
