I have an old compaq armada, that nothing else has worked on so far. cant wait to give this a test!
i'm trying out boxpup right now. freakin awesome. the awn dock(?) and simplicity is beautiful. puppy rocks. screenshot below.
Boxpup uses Wbar, Openbox and Tint.
Puppy is great, once you accept the rather estoric way of looking for packages..., relying on ad-hoc contributions so post them in the forums.
I used Puppy Linux ages ago but I preferred DSL (Damn Small Linux).
It's been a while, so I will give it another shot. I use DSL as my USB OS, but if Puppy has got a lot better since I last used it I might replace DSL with it.
Last time I checked, DSL was a LOT faster than Puppy Linux.

I ran Puppy a couple of times as a live CD but never installed it.
A friend is running xubuntu on an 800MHz 250MB ram old computer. It's fine but a bit slow.
My question is, OK clearly Puppy will be faster, but will Firefox start faster in Puppy? Will OpenOffice start faster?
He really needs these two apps.
He's generally happy with it, but if you use a computer to browse the web, then sooner or later you're going to run onto a page with dozens of dancing hamsters and it will start grinding the gears.
