Happy User comments: I started using Puppy Linux about 3 - 4 months ago. It just seemed the Most User Friendly and was small and it worked on first try. It's .ISO image cd worked on my sony laptop and the flash drive boot worked on my toshiba latop and found my wireless network without any problems. I was online within minutes happily reading my email and surfing the internet.
Puppy Linux can boot from a USB FLash Disk thumb drive on newer PC's direct from a BIOS boot drive selection (usually hitting the Delete key or the F12 key). Puppy Linux can also boot directly from a CD disk drive from a CD disk
The ".ISO" 105 Megabyte Puppy Linux file download is burned slowly at x4 or x8 speed onto a new empty CD-R disk with multisession enabled. This Puppy Linux CD will just boot up and run with out any hard disk drive at all and will save files written back to the same CD. Using Puppy Linux is a good choice to get infrastructure built up again in Haiti for extremely low cost!
