Puppy Linux is an evolutionary operating system, based on GNU Linux.
Version: 2.00r1This is a play-thing, requested by a few people on the forum, and definitely not for the average user. In other words, Linux commandline nerds only! OneBone does not have any X GUI applications.
Operating System: Linux
It does have Elinks web browser, Ytree file manager and MP text editor. The Lucent and SmartLink modem drivers are included. There are lots of text-mode applications out there and a very interesting flavour of Puppy could be created, based on this starting point.
Puppy Linux is an evolutionary operating system, based on GNU Linux. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full featured. Puppy Linux can boot into a 64MB ramdisk, and that's it, the whole caboodle runs in RAM.
Unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, Puppy in its entirety loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly.
Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device (flash-Puppy), CDROM (live-Puppy), Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk (zippy-Puppy), floppy disks (floppy-Puppy), internal hard drive (hard-Puppy).
