    Can be frugally installed in the middle of a NTFS Microsoft partition and perform perfectly.

    but it only has heart for sofware that it calls pets......
    >>> Libre-Office and Open-Office and FireFox and GIMP are avalabiel as a Single File install.


    namely software that it has doctored to suit its system..
    >>> Tweeked to make sure the shared file dependencies are met. All OS must do this, else bloat large.

    dont go there. its hard work to expand this distro.
    >>> Not so.

    Also I have never had agreeable success with hard drive installation.
    >>> What ?

    and that is what puppy is......... its just using memory..
    >>> What ?

    its not a full blown system as such...
    >>> In Your Opinion, Mr. Welsh.
    I have installed Knoppix, Slack, Ubuntu (Ub, Lu, Xu, Mint), Puppy, DamnSmall, TinyCore, PartedMagic.
    along with the usual DOS, XP operating systems, onto various media.
    Most work as advertised, all are useful

    >>> Puppy is the Standard Install in my business.
    Can be frugally installed in the middle of a NTFS Microsoft partition and perform perfectly.
    Can be frugally installed on a USB Pen-Drive with 2GB space, with room for Open-Office.
    Can be pre-booted and then call the M$ OS directly (to by-pass the MBR) as a system saver.
    Will Read-Write to NTFS, and Linux formats, perfectly.

    Of course, that is Just My Opinion, for which I am paid well.
    Good Luck to the original poster.

    Just found SEMPLICE Linux from Italy. It looks like the Ubuntus (plural?) but its not.
    It installs with 256 mb, good driver support, good software, good performance.
    Fantastic installer.

    Really old laptops like 64mb P166 et al, go find a copy of DamSmallLinux.
    Original versions of little Puppy are still available.
