You said it! Very Happy

For me Puppy IS the best distro ever Idea I use it as a frugal installation, but only for Internet applications. All I need runs fast and smooth... some little problems were solve thx Mikes ans Semmes help. Cool

BUT...

...I also use XP (offline) in the Virtual Box for my accustomed working environment. This solution is much better than Wine. And thanks Shinobars great job, the installation is done in a blink of an eye!

Regards,
Walter

Puppy Preciese 5.7.1
A four year heavily used XP with a lot of applications
Virtualbox 4.3.8
Intel T7200 Dualcore @ 2.0 GHz
3GB RAM but I spent only 1 for XP
128 MB video memory

It's great, I love it Shocked

Regards,
Walter

No, it's not the best but it compliments other distros such as Ubuntu and Slackware (Slax, whatever). It happens to be my favorite but that doesn't make it the best.

Puppy' niche is still running completely in RAM, providing a fast interface that many users like. It's at least partially moving away from these roots but I believe that's still the main attraction of the Puppy platform.

I'm not sure how many users noticed but it slipped from its regular 10 spot on distrowatch to 11. Still, notably well with so many Linux distros out there.
