First Impressions of Puppy Linux Lucid 5.2.8

Filed under
Linux

I installed Puppy Linux on my Dell XPS M1530 without any programs. Everything worked instantly, including my WLAN card. Within minutes I installed Chrome, setup syncing, and was off to my blog to write a post about it. Pupply Linux is packed full of features, games, tools, and utilities. It’s much different than Ubuntu or Debian, but different doesn’t mean that it’s not as good. It’s just looks, feels, and operates differently.

If I choose to use Puppy Linux full time, it will take some time to learn all the in’s and out’s. But that’s okay! Learning new things is great! What I don’t like is being faced with challenges that I can not overcome or can not find solutions to. I haven’t experienced that yet with Puppy Linux.
