Thumbs up Community Edition

Community Edition
1.09ce - the most stable, firefox series 1.xx Puppy

Our latest stable Open Office + 2.02 Puppy is Puppy 2.03 - also a Community Edition
PuppyOffice 2.03CE

To our amazement people are loading and using (I am using it now in fact)
Puppy 2.10 (Alpha release) and finding it usable

. . . should be good by the time it gets to beta

What are Puppy's system reuirements

Hi, guys,
I would like to find what are the real hardware requirements to run Puppy.
How much RAM is minimally required, how much is optimal and how much is desirable?
Thanks for your comments.

Assuming that the GUI will be run (which it will be, in most cases):

100 Mhz processor or better + 32 MB RAM and an IDE (hard disk or CD drive). 420 MB hard disk will do, or 4X CD drive.

128 MB RAM will be optimal if used with hard disk, and 256 MB or more RAM if used without hard disk.

There is a CLI (text-mode) version, "onebone", for which the minimum specifications could be lower than those given above.

Being on Dial-Up I tried a few of the older versions and as they didn't come with LT modem support I didn't spend much time using or getting to know them.
This all changed a few days ago when I read that Puppy 2.1 Seamonkey came with Dial-Up modem support.
I was online in under a minute!
Now that I had an internet connect I was able to see how Puppy would surf the net and discovered that Puppy comes with alot of Codecs built in.
It even played an encrypted DVD other Linux distros wouldn't even look at.
It also seems to download faster than then Windows and open web pages quicker.
The more time I spend with Puppy the more I like it.

While it's not perfect it's now installed on my Hard Drive with Windows XP, Mepis 3.4-3, Elive beta 0.5 and a Linux called "GNU LinEX" that contains 150 games and is Debian based which came free on a Linux Magazine.

Hi, John,

I understand your excitement with Linux in general and with Puppy in particular. I am in the same boat. I love Fedora Core 5 and Puppy with Office 2.0.

I understand what you mean saying that most people have no idea what is Linux. It is called intertia - people use what they get used to use (for example, QWERTY keyboard).

It takes effort to switch for something new, even if it is better. It is human nature to try to keep status quo.

Mac is a very good platform but keeping it up to date is pretty costly for an individual.

I am going to start a new discussion on what is the ideal hardware configuration to use with Puppy - please join it. I believe you have a lot of ideas to share.

Thank you for your post.

after receiving some essential help form puppy gurus down here , i'm able to do what i want to do with puppy and infact i'm actually thinking of contributing(kind of) back by answering some questions(those simple enough for me though) but cant find one yet at the moment ...

for the time being i would like to "contribute" something back in this thread by saying puppy really works great for people coming in to linux for the first time or second time and such ... if you got a slower pc it is great , if yours is a better one then it would be even better if theres not much hardwares problems(but which doesnt ??) ...

and you dont need to run any home pc by pulling out big iron i-beams and stacking/erecting/joining them with over-sized bolts and nuts just for simple home pc usages ... there are no secrets , everything are so simple when you are with puppy linux ...

ok , thats it ... was given some documentions few days ago to read and understand linux a little bit more ...

//hope that i'm not saying anything wrong as a truly first timer with puppy linux ... forgive me if theres any ...
