Linux How can you run a full range of current applications on older computers, netbooks, thin clients, and mobile devices? One way is to install a lightweight Linux like Puppy, Lubuntu, or Vector Light. Select the distro with the apps that meets your needs while matching your computer's resources.

Tiny Core seems to be more minimalistic than Puppy. While things like web browsing email and word processing can be done with Tiny core, Puppy does those same things in a more polished way.

Or, to put it another way, when you are using Tiny Core, you know you are using a minimalist distribution. Puppy on the the hand has a fuller featured user interface.
