Puppy Confusion


Okay, so I was looking for a lightweight distro to introduce a friend to the wonderful world of Linux and FOSS with, and Puppy looks like just the ticket.

The problem is... there are two websites (puppylinux.com and puppylinux.org), both of which claim to be the genuine article. So I've no idea which one to steer her to.

I CAN'T STAND THE CONFUSION IN MY MIIIIIINNNNDDD!

www.puppylinux.com is the official site from Barry. www.puppylinux.org is the official community site.
