With all this talk of people installing Mac OS X, Windows XP, and even Windows Vista on the Eee PC, I figured I had to get in on some of this alternate OS action. But I don’t have a USB DVD drive, and more importantly, I don’t really want to mess with the Xandros operating system that comes with the Eee PC, which for the most part I love.
So I decided to give my Eee some puppy love. Puppy Linux, that is. Puppy is a tiny Linux distribution that fits on a flash drive, and can be booted from a flash drive. It’s sort of like a LiveCD, in that you can run it from any PC without writing anything to the PC’s hard drive. But since you’re running the OS off of flash memory and not a CD, you can save data.
