I run various flavors of Linux, via Live USB, on my laptop when I am visiting suspect sites. I have to admit, Puppy Linux is my favorite.

Slaphappy, I agree with you on the Puppy linux, it is amazing for how small it is. I would recommend it for someone wanting to check out an alternate operating system.

If I could dual boot it well with windows I would probably be using it but I always ended up having to stick in a CD or a floppy disk or some such thing to force the machine to boot into Puppy instead of windows.

@limburger - That boot problem probably has to do with some of the proprietary BIOS that some companies use, like HP, Dell. I haven't quite figured out why on my main Windows pc, but I decided to just leave that alone because it took me 2 weeks to set that system up recently again.. I have a second machine, a Dell 2.0GHz Pentium 4, that is only running Puppy right now, installed to hard drive. Still need the live cd to boot, and haven't taken the time to figure out just why. Works just fine booting with the cd, though.
Not sure if the Dell BIOS won't play with grub, or I set up grub wrong?
Maybe I'll find out why some day. Smile
I have a third Athlon 1.4ghz machine. Puppy is going on that one exclusively, after i clean off the partitions of various flavors of ubuntu and older puppy versions. The grub bootloader worked ok on that one. It's some kind of generic pc, with standard motherboard BIOS.

I'm a linux user as well. I use Mepis as my distro though. Btw, almost half the people who replied here use linux....impressive. I didn't think it would be that high.

@Leanne

Yep, 47% is pretty good. Maybe all the Windows users are queuing outside PCWorld waiting to get their hands on Windows 7 ( due out tomorrow)
