USB-Sticks with Puppy Linux
Puppy Linux is a space-saving Linux distribution that can be started directly from CD and carries a Chihuahua named Puppy in its logo.
The approximately 60 to 90 MB (depending on the software selection) large distribution was reassembled from scratch by the Australian Barry Kauler. JWM (Joe's Window Manager) is used as desktop interface, while themes allow the appearance and functionality of the Puppy interface to be very similar to those of Windows operating systems. Other window managers such as IceWM or FVWM95 can also be used to adapt the surface to individual habits. The latest versions offer the Desktop KDE and use either the browser Seamonkey or Opera and have write access to NTFS partitions since version 2.02.
Puppy Linux 0.6 is particularly suitable for use on older computers, since only about 48 MB RAM is required. The current versions require 128 MB of memory to load Puppy Linux completely and without swap partition into memory, which makes the distribution with its various programs very fast. The boot process is also quite fast with Puppy Linux, compared to other Linux distributions.
