[News] Review of Puppy Linux 4.2.1

Hash: SHA1

First look at Puppy Linux 4.2.1 (by Jesse Smith)

,----[ Quote ]
| My conclusion is that Puppy is an interesting live CD. It strikes me as a 
| tool I could hand to a student taking a system admin course as a demo, or 
| perhaps a Windows admin that needs the functionality of a Linux live CD. It's 
| a tool which could be used to test old hardware; perhaps to wipe or backup 
| drives. It's not a distribution I'd recommend installing on a hard disk or 
| using as a day-to-day operating system or even connecting to the Internet. 
| Its strengths lie in its small size and friendly approach to Windows users, 
| not everyday use.       



Booting Puppy 4.1.2 from a USB stick — it could stand in well for Chrome OS

,----[ Quote ]
| I went whole hog and used a 128 MB stick. Yep, that's it. I have a huge 20 MB
| left for storage. Now that I know this works (at least on my Dell, the only
| box to which I have access that also allows booting via USB) I'll get a
| bigger stick and actually have some room to, as they say, maneuver.
| Doing the install was easy. I booted Puppy 4.1.2 from a CD I had previously
| burned (I know Puppy is up to 4.2 ... I'll have to try it). Then I used the
| menu to install to USB. The only thing I did that wasn't a default was
| selecting mbr.bin as the boot method. It works.

Tiny Core | Linux is based on Busybox, the Linux 2.6 kernel, JWM, Fltk and Tiny X. `---- http://desktoplinuxreviews.com/2009/07/01/tiny-core-linux-2-1/ CDLinux 0.9.2 Community Edition Review ,----[ Quote ] | Five weeks ago when I wrote an overview of Debris Linux I received a number | of requests to review other mini distributions from DistroWatch Weekly | readers. CDLinux is a minimalist distro from China which takes a different | approach to small. Rather than cram as many application as possible onto a | mini (3"/8cm) CD, the CDLinux Community Edition aims for excellent support of | half a dozen languages (Chinese, English, French, German, Japanese and | Russian), support for a wide variety of filesystems and excellent hardware | support, including CUPS and XSane for printers and scanners, all of which are | included in the 204MB iso. They also offer a "standard" edition, just 64MB in | size, which includes a basic Xfce desktop and almost no applications at all. | CDLinux "standard" does include popular rescue and admin tools, making it an | excellent choice for a recovery CD.
