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.

My chief problem with Puppy is a lot bigger than that, although you're absolutely right.

It's that the suggested, recommended and supported mode of operation, last time I looked (which was at Lucidpuppy), was still to log in and run as 'root'. This is *unforgiveable*.
