I just bought a little netbook that I was hoping to use for travel. Its got a 900Mhz CPU Processor with 512mb of ram which I hope to bump up to 1GB and a 60GB Hard Drive. There is no optical drive so i will have to install from a usb device. I was wondering what the best distro is for something of this nature (as the main OS)? I like slacko puppy but is it good for everyday use and some one who is still learning the ins and outs of linux. Are updates provided like in Ubuntu? Thanks so much!

Hi Slacko, Saluki or precise if you want really mature then its gotta be Lucid and yes all are just fine for everyday use.

Have you bothered to check the Puppy website, and do a search?

Puppy can be installed to a hard drive in the conventional way, but it's really intended to be used by loading it into the memory from CD/USB. Because of the security problem of running as root, it's better to do a 'frugal install', treating the hard drive as if it were a USB stick.

Running in RAM, Precise Puppy needs 512MB and Wary Puppy 384MB. If you prefer Xfce to JWM, Saluki will still run in 512BM

If you just need a small Linux with a conventional installation in 512MB RAM or less, you might like Zorin Light (LXDE), Vector (Xfce), or Swift (Icewm).

I've got Puppy Slacko running on my original Asus EEEPC 701 which has a Celeron 900Mhz CPU, 1Gb RAM and a 4Gb SDD! I've still got a few Megs of 'disk' available for storage.

You should have no trouble!

Play Bonny!
