Puppy Linux – the small operating system

Firstly, for those who do not know, an operating system is software that is on your computer that allows you to run programs to do useful stuff such as surfing the net.

Windows is an operating system, it’s a big operating system! I downloaded a trial version recently and it came in over 2GB (2000MB). Puppy Linux is a small operating system, weighing in at around 100MB. Now that’s small!  To be fair Windows does contains a lot more stuff then Puppy Linux but do you use all that stuff?

ITPro published an article on Puppy Linux recently on how it can be useful because of its smallness – easily running in memory from a CD or USB stick.  It can also give an old PC a new lease of life.

To learn more about Puppy Linux read the ITPro article: Puppy Linux: Just for fun or go directly to the Puppy Linux website to read up on it and maybe even give it a try.

If you do then let us know what you think.
