LXer: Puppy Linux ó could it replace Debian on my oldest hardware?

Published at LXer:

Iíve run Puppy Linux before. Many times. I started with Puppy 2.13 and still remember that release very, very fondly. I did the Lenny-to-Squeeze upgrade on my 12-year-old Compaq laptop by the book (the release notes, that is), and everything went perfectly well. I canít get the new Grub to work, but itís still chainloading to grub-legacy, so I can stick with that if need be. But my Xfce environment on this aging laptop isnít ideal. If any machine was made for a low-spec live distribution like Puppy or TinyCore, this Compaq laptop is that computer.
