I have used xubuntu booting from a flash stick ....better than puppy in terms of presentation and almost everything worked straight from the install...a few minor tweaks, downloded audio and video codecs and its good---the biggest problem is that it is not as responsive as Puppy and has some noticeable lag at times

Tanks,
I been wondering what to do with my Asus eeePC (900mhz Celeron).

edit:
Used guvcview in Wary to test my webcam (works fine).
It worked instantly in Android.

A neighbor gave me a eeePC 8g 701 last week after fixing
his electric garage door.

I've been running 5.28 (ermmm... 5.28.004?) on my Asus 900eee, without problems...


I am very encouraged and would like to say thankyou for your work to upgrade a fine Pup like this "528" - your doing great work.

Simplicity Puppy? I must have been sleeping or something.
What do we know about this version then?

http://distrowatch.com/?newsid=08073

" [Simplicity Linux] David Purse has announced the availability of the beta release of Simplicity Linux 13.10, a Puppy-based distribution designed for desktops, netbooks and media centres"
Oops I should have used the search in my signature.

Simplicity Linux - something fishy

Do not think I will try Simplicity any time soon, good luck to them though.

Anyone tried NixOS. Sounds like it is created in a way that has some similarities with Woof

Quote:
In NixOS, the entire operating system — the kernel, applications, system packages, configuration files, and so on — is built by the Nix package manager from a description in a purely functional build language. The fact that it’s purely functional essentially means that building a new configuration cannot overwrite previous configurations. Most of the other features follow from this.

NixOS certainly looks promising, but it's clearly not for beginners. Here's an excerpt from its homepage;

You configure a NixOS system by writing a specification of the functionality that you want on your machine in /etc/nixos/configuration.nix.

For instance, here is a minimal configuration of a machine running an SSH daemon:

{
boot.loader.grub.device = "/dev/sda";

fileSystems."/".device = "/dev/sda1";

services.sshd.enable = true;
}

After changing /etc/nixos/configuration.nix, you realise the configuration by running this command:

$ nixos-rebuild switch

This command does everything necessary to make the configuration happen, including downloading and compiling OpenSSH, generating the configuration files for the SSH server, and so on.

I installed Lubuntu 13.10 beta 2 to an Acer desktop.

Operating System
Version
Kernel Linux 3.11.0-11-generic (x86_64)
Compiled #17-Ubuntu SMP Tue Oct 1 19:42:04 UTC 2013
C Library Unknown
Default C Compiler GNU C Compiler version 4.8.1
(Ubuntu/Linaro 4.8.1-10ubuntu6)
Distribution Ubuntu Saucy Salamander (development branch)

It has a Lubuntu Software Center which works well but I needed to
choose the Run option from the menu to start kshisen because clicking
on it from the Games menu didn't work.

Lubuntu is working well .

Just installed PC-BSD 9.2 (the latest version). It's early days yet but it seems pretty stable and works well. The only problem I've found so far is that if you want to install any additional programs from the App Cafe (yes that's what it's called), the program sizes are almost insanely big. Geeqie, for example, is a 56 MB download, GKrellM is an 85 MB one (I kid you not) and Firefox 17 ESR is about 98 MB.

I recently installed Korora 19.1 (the latest version), which is based on Fedora, and it seems to be working well. Sadly I couldn't get Flash to work consistently in PC-BSD so I've gone back to ZevenOS Neptune for the time being (there's a new version out now, 3.3), which is based on Debian and includes KDE and the Calligra office suite. Looks like a "keeper" for me at the moment as it does almost everything well.
