Review of 5 mini distros

Forum member cthisbear discovered the first review of Puppy 4.00:
http://www.tuxmachines.org/node/26480

However, the reviewer tested the 2.6.25 kernel build, which is not as mature. The USB mouse would have worked with the 2.6.21.7 build. Ndiswrapper works fine to. So really the rating should have been 5/5!

Note also, the 2.6.21.7 build is 87.1MB.

I must emphasize, the 2.6.21.7 build is the one to use! Perhaps I should move the 2.6.25 build into a 'testing' subdirectory so it isn't chosen first.

UPDATE:
Okay, I have moved the 2.6.25 build into test/puppy-4.00-with-2.6.25-kernel/ directory at ibiblio.

yes...
Good idea to mark it "testing" -- i saw your note just before i was about to burn the newer kernel, so i switched.

No Puppy on NLUUG.NL?
No directory "puppylinux" on NLUUG.NL anymore?

http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/

(So petget only works with the slowly ibiblio.org side.)

Any information about NLUUG.NL?

Puppy on NLUUG is working
puppylinux is back on NLUUG:
http://ftp.nluug.nl/ftp/pub/os/Linux/distr/

Strange - the puppylinux folder disappears for several times during the last 3 days....
