Talk to banks about providing Puppy CDs to customers.
They'd want to 'brand' the CDs and/or packaging, of course, but no matter.

A live CD turns any computer into a safe, dedicated banking device.
Here's an article on the matter:

or

Seems to me banks handing out Puppy CDs would be good for spreading both Puppy and Linux in general.

I've been tweeting my experience with Puppy on an old Pentium-M laptop (Toshiba Tecra l2) as a complete linux-noob.

Tried Lubuntu; didn't work. Tried Bodhi; worked, but way too sloooooow. Tried Puppy; worked great, quick & snappy.
I'm getting a 20-60gig hard drive for the Tecra & making it a Puppy-only box.

Sounds good to me. I don't use Twitter or Facebook, but both would probably be good places to spread the word about Puppy.

How I Can Promote a Puppy from a FatDog64?

Lubuntu 13.10 haves a error for build libwacom. and That's some slowly...
FatDog64: Allows Complication. Pretty Fast. Portablity. For LiveUSB: Very good.

What can each of us do to promote Puppy?


In the US on halloween haunted houses etc are common.

I did this a few years back but the idea just came back to me.

With some simple scripting, a collection of screams and moans can be made to come out of the two audio channels. The slightly tricky bit was running 4 speakers off each side of the amplifier in series parallel.

On oldish computers that have good old printer ports, the printer port can be used to time effects.

You can kludge a switch onto the RXD of a USB to RS232 converter to make a trigger input.

Then all you need is someone to ask how it was done and you can say "its easy if you have one of these"

Now that I found the layman-friendly Windows installers, on every local forum I recommend Puppy to be added to XP-machines. (Instead of buying a new OS or even a new pc)
