I have been thinking about this for over a week but cant bring myself to wipe the drive again to install another distro. Using live SliTaz right now and I really like it. I want to know, should I do it or stick with Puppy? I mostly just use the internet on it anyway and SlTaz seems to run really well on this dino... 

 

 I want your opinions not a "whatever works for you" thing.

 

EDIT: And I like the package managment system. Everything on SliTaz is so simple and fast.

I prefer Linux. Windows 10 is just to invasive for me.

As a devoted puppy user I say puppy rules.  Never tried SliTaz. But I will try it out. And sorry but I think "whatever works for you" thing is true.  Why do I love my pup because it works for me.

 

Ok had a look at it ummm its light its fast ummm still prefer my fatty puppy 3 gig download with  everything i need out of the box. I am lazy and let somebody else do all the hard work in putting it together ( thanks fatty team/person) I have 2 laptops running puppy the wife and kid because it has wine on it the wife can run ms office on it, and she is happy ( DO NOT SUGGEST OPEN OFFICE OR SIMILAR she wants office it makes her happy and a happy wife = peace quiet and other benifits) the brat loves it because it can run skype and pidgon, her and her friends all now use linux to comunicate ( most parents do not know Windows let alone linux and the kids can now keep secrets from parents( I am in trouble over that ) My HP Pavilion G6  has fatty on it also, Got to love steam and with a AMD A4-3305m apu and 4 gigs of ram this thing is so fast that I am afraid of speeding tickets. Great for games.

 

But I guess you can do the same with SliTaz.

Lucid, it seems to be always really slow browsing with Opera...     Midori and Opera run REALLY fast on SliTaz but Puppy has more features.

Went ahead and tried SliTaz and I think it's better that Puppy (For one it looks better) so I am using it right now. Thanks for the input!

@ AlexSmithFanning

 

What system are you running SliTaz on? I have this old Win ME...and Puppy just might not cut it.
