This chat we are having is getting even more interesting Mike, Tech + others. I too have been playing with Puppy Linux. I only have a P3 600, 256 megs, 32 meg ATI Radeon 7000, dsl internet, so, especially as a live cd, Ubuntu is very slow. Puppy 2.0 (which works best on my computer) suits me perfectly because I can run it as a live cd, which loads completely into ram, runs almost as fast as Win98SE. Puppy saves all my settings after each session to a 512 mb file on my computer "C" drive, so the next time I run Puppy it boots up in 30 sec. keeps all my settings. Even though I use Puppy only as a live cd, I can install new software like Firefox, the Gimp, to that large file on my "C" drive until it fills up. My only problem with all Linux is I cannot get a driver for my Lexmark P915 printer not even at linuxprinting.org, the central repository for Linux printer drivers.

I can't take anymore time now, but my story about how I got into playing with a Mac was a revelation, very inexpensive, perhaps another time, another subject. Bottom line, is that there is no registry in a Mac, therefore very little chance of a virus or spyware. Even installing + uninstalling software is so simple. Ken.

Try ReActOS. Runs at 16 MB, and is very fast with such little ram!

Hi Dave,

Interesting. Thank you. Although in alpha testing, have you tried it with any well known windows programs (including Avast)?

My regards

No, but you're giving me ideas for keeping me out of trouble!  ;D

This should be interesting.
