Puppy Linux

Image
Specifications
Puppy has been built from scratch, file-by-file, and is not based on any other Linux distribution. One of the most amazing features of Puppy is the range of powerful applications yet such tiny size... and the speed. Puppy really is small, the live-CD typically being 85MB, yet there really is a complete set of GUI applications. Being so small, Puppy usually loads completely into RAM, which accounts for the incredible speed.

This is a cool little distro! Not only run directly from CD/USB, but has built in persistence! It will remember what you do and save what you ask it to. Puppy Lupu 5.0 is built on Ubuntu code, so it is even more user friendly than it is known for. Great for beginners to install on a hard disk or for anyone needing a portable OS solution.

Puppy linux is a very quick, compact distro. It has plenty of functional programs included with it, and the user is able to create a customized cd. Very nice!
