The little puppy following is... well... Puppy Linux:
On an HP XE400. This little beauty is a laptop I rescued from Electronic Recycling. I wiped an XP install that wouldn't even start. It boasts a sizzling 232 MB of RAM and a whopping 18G hard drive. This version of Puppy is based on Precise and is a non-PAE version called Puppy_Retro. It loads into RAM in about 20 seconds. And everything works perfectly. Even the battery works. I'm replacing my docked Ipod with this free beauty. I have it connected to my stereo and load Radiotray. I got fed up with Apple's endless fussiness and elitism. I couldn't play this. I couldn't play that. "Sorry, won't play flash. Server isn't blah, blah, blah... Oh? Is that Windows Media? FLAC? OGG? Sorry, can't play those. They aren't good enough for Apple..." The larger images are here and here.
And now? With my Puppy? I can play it all.
Who'd have thought a throw away from trash recycling could be more versatile and useful than a modern day Apple product?
I. Love. Linux.
