Puppy Linux

I'm a big fan of Puppy Linux - this is a distribution of Linux that has some really nice features:

  • it's very small (c. 150Mb ISO) but fully featured with most applications you need
  • it can co-exist happily with both Windows and other Linux'es on your hard disk
  • it has many ways of being installed but I use whats called "frugal install" where you simply copy 3 files to a sub-directory on your hard disk
  • it can run on old hardware with very little memory
  • it boots up really fast (compared to Windows)
