The latest how2.0 column is about building a 72$ PC they chose DSL and didn't mention puppy that is a shame since the 500mhz 128mb ram celeron booting from usb would be perfect for puppy.

Release the Rottweilers Twisted Evil

Embarassed Only joshing

DSL is the better known release
they may be unaware of Puppy

I think the Slackware based Austrumi is very good
but also not well known

. . . ah well

I e-mailed the columnist a discription of puppy and some pic w/ beryl and EZpup.
the email>
I thoroughly enjoyed the 72$ PC article however you failed to mention Puppy Linux (www.puppylinux.com www.puppylinux.org and www.murga-linux.com/puppy) in my opinion it has demonstrated itself to be much better in computability with a very broad range of hardware it detects my very old laptop's touchpad while DSL does not. While this pc is very cheap I would like to see continuing articles with links to hardware I can buy cheaply in the 75$ 150$ and 200-250$ range I suspect that a 250$ PC would be capable of running Beryl in Puppy Linux. I have attached a pic of my PC bought for 350$ a year ago running Beryl and Puppy Linux. The first screenshot is of puppy running beryl window manager (windows become totally 3d they can wobble/jiggle explode/implode and much more) it even runs on my old nvidia Geforce2 400MX 64Mb video card (vista I laugh at you ha ha..). The second screenshot is of Puppy Linux with the EZpup addon that can be downloaded and then installed in just a few easy click try it out yourself. also installed in both is the open office addon and mplayer. Puppy Linux can play DVDs and has Flash 9 right out of the box. Puppy Linux has been demonstrated running on the oqo2 ompc running from usb and is very lightwieght I run it on a 300Mhz laptop w/ 64mb no problem(this includes EZpup addon).
