8 Rocking Linux Distros

| Defining the best Linux distros is like defining the best car--one does not 
| exist; instead, the best cars are the ones that meet your needs, and your 
| needs may vary wildly from the needs of another person. Just as an F150 might 
| be the best vehicle for you and a Civic for me, Ubuntu might be what you need 
| from Linux while I'll be fine with DSL.    


Puppy 4.2 ScreenShots

| This is the first time I ever used Puppy Linux and the interface is really 
| impressive. The install was not as simple as I expected it to be. ( But then 
| again, the Ubuntu based Distro's have spoiled me, what can i say??? :) ). 
| Also this is the first time I used JWM ( Joe Window manager ). What really 
| grasped me about Puppy Linux was how fast the applications launched. Also 
| Puppy Linux reminded me of Slax on how fast the applications loaded, which is 
| a good thing.

generally signals publicly -- and their customers are using it..."

Fun with Puppy puplets

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux 4.1.2 is an amazing little distro -- under 100 MB, and yet packed
| with applications. In this day of portable applications that can be run from
| USB flash drives, Puppy may be the ultimate portable app. The standard
| version comes with AbiWord and Gnumeric for office needs, the SeaMonkey web
| browser and html editor, Fotoxx image viewer, gXine for movies, Gtkam digital
| camera interface, Xsane scanner interface, ePDFview for PDFs, torrent, Geany
| and Leafpad for editing text... and the list goes on. Everything is included
| to give the user a complete operating system.
| [...]
| Because Puppy Linux is so flexible, new users are often not fully aware of
| its potential. Now, with the proliferation of puplets, with their variety of
| window managers and program selections, the possibilities for Puppy are more
| apparent.
| Puppy is fast and stable, with useful programs. It works well on the newest
| and the oldest computers. It offers unique backup features with a simple copy
| of pup_save. It encourages users to customize it, and to learn about Linux in
| a fun way. Add to this the ability to remaster the ISO using an easy script,
| essentially merging the pup_save file with the original Puppy distribution
| files. One can do a personal remaster, with all one's settings, or remaster
| for general distribution to others. No other Linux distro does things like
| this.

Puppy Linux On Windows Desktop

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux is an interesting Linux distribution which offers multiple
| features, despite of its low file size (around 99 MB). An average computer
| user will find enough flexibility and an increased speed during the execution
| of common tasks like web browsing, text processing, image editing and more.
| Puppy Linux integrates many simple to use applications useful for office
| related tasks, multimedia playback, gaming and networking. It has many
| installation options too.


PortableApps in Puppy Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux can be installed on your USB stick. So can
| PortableApps, a collection of cross platform open source
| software that can run on Windows. Interestingly, nearly all
| of the apps also run perfectly in wine, except for a few
| issues. So, I got an idea. Why not try and integrate the
| two.
