Puppy Linux (www.goosee.com/puppy) is a live CD distribution of Linux. It is relatively new but worth mentioning here because of the incredible amount of work that goes into it and its general excellence. A complete Puppy Linux CD image runs around 60MB, can be booted from CD or installed into bootable USB flash memory devices or permanently on systems. It is compact but also provides a generous amount of well-thought-out, well-integrated Linux software. Puppy comes complete with a graphical user interface, popular graphical tools for word processing (AbiWord), image editing (GIMP), instant messaging, CD and DVD playing, and much more.
