Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Puppy Linux

Filed under
Linux

As I’m fairly sure you know, Linux is known to be capable of virtually running everywhere and doing anything. Not only does it run on a majority of our world’s supercomputers, but it can also run on the tiniest systems ever made, just as the size of a quarter. Today we’ll be taking a look at a distribution of Linux that is famous for being able to run with very little hardware requirements, Puppy Linux.

Puppy Linux isn’t based on another distribution; it is developed completely on its own. The system can, however, be built from packages of other distributions like Ubuntu, Arch Linux, and Slackware thanks to the Woof project. One of the great advantages of this distribution is it’s very small size. Generic Puppy Linux offers a 128MB ISO to download, with both “new” and long-term release options available. The small size lets Puppy Linux boot on any CD or USB stick and run with a weak CPU and low amount of memory.

  • SMS based Cosmos Browser for the developing countries
    Browsing the internet has different meaning to different people. While to some the web is a source of entertainment, to others it is a valuable and source of learning. Sadly enough, the internet is not widely available and easily affordable everywhere in the globe. Slow network speed is another problem. Developer Stefan Aleksic of ColdSauce tries to find a solution in an SMS (text) based browser for the third world countries which are yet to see the internet as we know it. He has named it the Cosmos Browser. If you ever used elinks on Linux, you know how efficient and low-bandwidth text only browsing can be. Of course, it is not meant for visiting a website for downloading wallpapers, but it is more than sufficient if you want to read some information from the web. Cosmos will work on text and will not need any data plan or WiFi.
