Puppy Linux

Puppy Linux Website
Puppy Linux is an operating system that is small and has low minimum system requirements. It allows 'Live' booting from CDs, DVDs, USB sticks. It runs entirely from RAM, making it unusually fast. Supports a complete range of applications.

What do you think of Puppy Linux?

I haven't tried Puppy Linux yet Patricia but I'm definitely going to try setting up a LiveUSB install of Ubuntu after seeing John Jennings from Tipperary Institute of Technology use a borrowed computer at Gaelscoil.com as 'his own' computer by inserting his USB key and booting from it. It's a 'persistent' key too which means any changes he makes are saved back to the key. So, extract it after the session and carry it away with you - it's like a computer on a UBS key!

It's certainly nice having the OS on a USB key and the 'persistent' key ability is even better again. Thanks for the example James.
