User Stories About Puppy 4.3.1

December 8, 2009 - TonyZ: "I just downloaded v 4.3.1 to compare it to Ubuntu Netbook RM [Remix] 9.10 and I have to say that this may be one of the best distros I've ever used. Movies worked...MP3s worked...Network and Sound...everything worked. Automounting drive...ntfs..fat...usb...really great. I can't complement you enough.

Puppy Linux Sale - Buy 1 Take 2

Nov 16, 2009 - From Tristan:

Tristan selling Linux CD

Hi, i want to congratulate you for your creation, Puppy Linux is great in every way. I have been using it for some time now, and passing the word too. [I have been trying to sell Puppy at] a couple of sites like (the eBay of Latin America) and [Despite being suspended twice for selling Linux for very cheap, ] finally they let me post my ads. I still charge $1 for each sell, I honestly do not earn [from this], but I have had a great response. People are really interested in Linux, most of them in Ubuntu, but I always send a free copy of PuppyLinux, and everyone loves it. The good thing about Ubuntu is that it gets everyone excited to use Linux.. [The] good thing about Puppy is that it is so easy to use, so they buy from me Ubuntu Linux, and I send Puppy and Ubuntu Linux! OK, that's my little grain of sand for the Linux world, am not a programmer, just an illustrator/graphic designer.

Note: Some Spanish Puppy Linux: Boby, Molinux Zero

Distrowatch - What is a good Linux distro for older hardware?

Oct 26, 2009 - To the question "What distribution would you recommend for older, low-specification hardware?", Jesse Smith lists, from large to small:
  1. Slax
  2. Puppy
  3. Damn Small
Jesse added: "Puppy Linux is a really easy-to-use mini-Linux which does a fine job of balancing performance with ease of use. Chances are if you're new to Linux in general, the user interface of Puppy will put you at ease. I used to shy away from recommending this distro because it didn't really handle multiple user accounts, but I understand this has been improved upon recently."

XOpup development starts

Oct 23, 2009 - Puppy Linux developer ttuuxxx just received 2 units of the XO-1 laptops for the development of XOpup (puplet for the XO-1).

ttuuxxx avatar ".. I received the 2X laptops today, They are the current model, I did specifically ask for the next generation or prototype, the reason is that, if this takes like 6 months [like 2.14X did], then once it's finished it could be useless. Also the power adapters are North American.. so I have to go out and buy 2x 12V adapters." - see the Forum for the full post.

According to Forum member mavrothal, as many as 1 million XO users can benefit from the expected snappy XOpup.

ttuuxxx has successfully updated Puppy Linux 214R, a special puplet built by Forum members pakt and dougal using Puppy Linux version 2.14 which, in turn, was based on Linux kernel version 2.6.18. Called 214X, ttuuxxx's puplet sports new libraries and Firefox 3.5.

ttuuxxx helped a lot in the development of Puppy Linux CE 4.2 and, since the release of 4.2CE, has ben releasing a Firefox version of Puppy Linux that he called "Puppies". Look here for Puppies 4.2.1 and there for Puppies 4.3.1.

Puppy Linux for Safe Internet Banking - Australian Detective


"If you are using the internet for a commercial transaction, use a Linux boot up disk - such as Ubuntu or some of the other flavours. Puppylinux is a nice small distribution that boots up fairly quickly.

"It gives you an operating system which is perfectly clean and operates only in the memory of the computer and is a perfectly safe way of doing internet banking," van der Graaf said.
