Puppy Linux 5.2.8 is targeted users working with older computer hardware. Puppy Linux is similar to Damn Small Linux and Feather Linux in being able to get those Pentium 2 PCs back up and running. Puppy Linux is available as a Live CD which also comes with a full graphical installation option too and a great set of programs. The Live CD will bootup on systems with only 128mb of RAM, but the more RAM you have the more Puppy Linux is able to keep files permanently in ramdisk hence more speed.
Puppy Linux is very small, and is designed to be reliable, easy to use and fully featured. The entire operating system and all the applications can be run from RAM and the CD, allowing the boot medium to be removed after the operating system starts. Included are applications such as SeaMonkey/Mozilla Application Suite, AbiWord, Sodipodi, Gnumeric, and Gxine/xine.
The distribution is independently developed from scratch. Puppy Linux can be useful for working on old computers, as an emergency rescue system, as a Linux demonstration system, or as a complete general purpose operating system
