* Puppy will boot off a minimum PC with 586 CPU and 32M RAM.
* Puppy will easily install to USB, Zip or hard drive media.
* Booting from CD, Puppy will load totally into RAM so that the CD
drive is then free for other purposes.
* Booting from USB, Puppy will greatly minimise writes, to extend
the life of Flash devices indefinitely.
* Puppy will be extremely friendly for Linux newbies.
* Puppy will boot up and run extraordinarily fast.
* Puppy will have /all/ the applications needed for daily use.
* Puppy will just work, no hassles.
i've tried it on 64 (very briefly), 128 and 256mb machines, it did work
ok. curious to see if you try it on a 32mb machine.
