Puppy Linux

Puppy Linux is a Linux distribution that is about 100 megabytes, yet it includes a complete set of graphical applications, combined with extensive utility applications. Puppy was created from scratch, file-by-file, optimized for size at every step. Another feature of Puppy Linux is that it can work totally without a hard drive, even allowing you to save data and install extra packages by saving back to the CD or DVD.

        Nice doggy!
        Puppy Linux is unbelievable. I installed it on a 10-year-old 760x Thinkpad,

        and got wireless to work within a couple of minutes. The only issue was

        the legacy cs4236 sound chipset, but I finally got that working too.

        So, now I've got high-speed internet on that "ancient" piece of hardware,

        thanks to Puppy.

        Highly, highly recommended.
