I’m hoping that Puppy Linux lives up to the performance claims I’ve read about to make my old Portege relatively useful.
So far I’m finding that it boots much much faster than the Xubuntu I had on it previously 🙂
There seems to be a a fair amount of software available for it as well on dokupuppy. For my usage I’m just looking for web access and a text editor, like vim. So far I’m set to give it a good try.
Installation Issues. Just like with Xubuntu. A tricky thing is that I had to hold down “Shift-C” to get the 3110CT to boot from an external CD Drive.

- Integrating Linux into the SME » desktoplinux.com – this is very lengthy. the last paragraph is an an endorsement for puppy on “weak” hardware.
- Taking Puppy Linux for a Walk » Lifehacker.au – this is where I first heard about puppy. Gina does a thorough review. (as usual)
