Run With The Big Dogs On Chubby Puppy Linux

Filed under
Reviews

Chubby Puppy Linux "fills out" the regular Puppy Linux release with the addition of the OpenOffice.org suite of applications. It's a full figured Linux version in a fast, lightweight liveCD package. It will put a little bite into that shaggy old retired desktop.

It loads completely into 128 MB of RAM and has most of the applications found in the Rottweiler-sized distros. Mozilla and the three main OpenOffice.org programs all show up on the desktop. Various mainstream file managers, graphics tools, Internet, and multimedia offerings appear under the Start button. And the programs run faster than many hard-disk based installations, even on older hardware.

Full Review.
