Hello raffyM,

Which points??????
There are no points for gaining hits.

Anyway, Welcome to Linux Questions

Have fun, but do not rob others' time.

Please note:- The above was written before raffyM wrote links. I thought he was doing some fun thing. Or should I delete my quotes above

I think I can speak for the puppy crowd in saying we'll play nice - no intention of spamming this list or such (if I understand your comment about robbing time?), just want to point out a distribution we are fond of, and more importantly, help others who have questions regarding puppy. Nothing is more annoying on a forum than spam.

It appears that a large portion of Puppy users are new to linux, as I am, so helping them find resources is important. That is one of the things that has made it work for me... were I using XP I'd be pulling my hair out, when with linux (or at least Puppy, since my experience is limited - probably a number of other distributions as well) I have the option of often getting an immediate answer from the irc channel or a quick answer from the forum. No more waiting days for a solution! THAT is what I love about open source... people want to see it succeed, which means seeing others succeed, which means helping out. In my case the appreciation I have for the help I've received just makes me want to help others in like fashion when I can.

Thank you for giving Puppy a thread here,

No problem with this thread. In fact, in the hope that one day people will actually read stickied threads, I have stickied this thread. It should be of great help to new and old puppy Linux users.

Isn't the official website .com not .org? (I might be wrong...)

Try the new Puppy Pro with Open Office 2.0 at . Even though it is listed as a beta, we couldn't find any problems and it looks very polished and professional. We added Firefox, RealPlayer and came up with a very nice remaster. Puppy Pro adds its refinements after the official Puppy Linux is released so the current download is based on Puppy 2.10 and is around 200 MB in size. For really old computers they are working on Puppy 1.10 CE (Community Edition), , which uses the 2.4 kernel.

Hi Raffy

Puppy Linux has come a long way since Raffy made this post and likely the most significant development is the Puppy Linux FAQ. Now Puppy users can find the best documentation and how-to articles covering everything new users could ever want to know.

Puppy Linux is the easiest and best distro available for Linux newcomers and Windows refugees. Now that the Puppy Linux FAQ is available anybody can start using and enjoying Linux. Prepare to be Impressed!
