I am visiting my parents for the week, going to do the whole Thanksgiving thing. My parent have a desktop computer thats pretty old. Probably around 8+ years since the last upgrade since it is running the PIII Coppermine processor that came out in '99 and runs on 320mb of ram. They have been complaining for some time about how slow the computer is and it seems to get just worst. They have a laptop they mostly use and their going to buy a new desktop. I tryed telling my mom about linux and she was way confused. I popped open my laptop and downloaded Puppy and burned it onto a cd and popped it into the computer and was shortly in the live environment. I got the the broadband internet going real quick and showed my mom it and she was amazed on how fast it was. I it will work perfect for her since she would use it mostly for internet, email. and photos. and between her my dad and my brother who moved back in with them its a nice to have a extra computer running good. I think there going to let me wipe windows xp off and do a full install of Puppy. I just need to get my mom to learn not to double click things , lol!

Good to know that Puppy saved the dying PC. Smile

You can make the desktop double click like windows. Read the below forum thread:
