Had tried this out . In the past I had used antix Linux for a Linux on a low resource machine

It run fast and well easy to setup persistence . Used the sea monkey browser with did every thing I asked of it come with VLC player so I had no problem listen to my music and had libre write so their was word processing . Had lots of what I wanted

The cons

was not straight forward to get the sound to work

The software selection was very limited and any thing I downloaded from the net would not install . I think over all antix was better because you can use the deb rain archives for additional software .


A worthy second place but maybe first place for you

Fatdog 64-800 booted fine off the CD and runs well on my HP EliteBook Folio 9480m. However, every attempt to install this OS to hard drive was a complete bust. I have had several other Linux distros running fine using Grub to select Windows 10 or whatever version of Linux I want to run. This approach has been working fine for many years on many different laptop computers. Windows 10 and UEFI threw a wrench in the works, but I seem to have figured out how to get this laptop to run what I want using Grub. The installation menu and help for Fatdog are not ready for the average user. Every attempt at a frugal install to a new, empty, FatDog folder on my linux partition failed to boot with a kernel panic and something about 0.0. This is probably something simple that a linux expert would recognize and fix in a minute. I'm stuck re-reading the totally confusing help and installation instructions. I liked Fatdog enough that I wanted to use it for a while and see if it would become my go-to Linux operating system. Sadly, an OS that I can't install and boot from the hard drive is useless to me. I'm going to keep using Puppy Tahr 64 for now. I've never had a minute of trouble doing frugal installs with various Puppy versions and usually manage successful installs for other Linux distros I want to try. If it boots and runs on my hardware from a CD, it will usually install to a linux partition, Grub will find it, and edit the boot menu. I gave FatDog a 5 since it did boot up and run fine from the CD.
