Puppy Linux

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


Puppy Linux is yet another Linux distribution. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly. Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device, CDROM, Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk, floppy disks, internal hard drive. It can even use a multisession formatted CD-RW/DVD-RW to save everything back to the CD/DVD with no hard drive required at all.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 23 (395), 6 months: 24 (358), 3 months: 30 (310), 4 weeks: 32 (314), 1 week: 28 (339)

Average visitor rating: 9.29/10 from 76 review(s).

I've run lxpup 18.05 on my system. It runs too fast. Even it runs faster than Lubuntu. I could rate it 10 but I rate it 8.
Pros- 1. you can carry the whole OS in just a pendrive or DVD.
2. No need to touch partitions like one does while installing other distros.
3. No need to make a swap file for it because it runs in RAM.
4. It can be installed within 2 minutes.
5. Very low hardware requirements make it better than other distros.
6. It doesn't look alike old puppy distros. Older puppy distros (before 7.5) look very ugly.

Cons- 1. It's too difficult to run a new downloaded package. I downloaded Chromium but it says root/sudo/downloads have changed to root's permission. I looked up through google and tried every way but it still shows this error.
2. You may stuck in grub bootloader if another linux distro has been already installed in grub 2 mode. Puppy uses older grub. It doesn't recognize other linux. I installed puppy's grub into my usb and didn't touch my harddisk's grub. So, it wasn't an issue for me.

why you use other linux, while puppy installs for 10 seconds, boot for 10-20 seconds, works on new and old hardware, works in ram that speed-up your pc, works with or without hdd, works installed or live, super small and light, and you can install almost all packages in the world :) ?
