Hi William,

Puppy was the first distro I used and it's great for safely banking and probably emails.

Serious distros such as Fedora, OpenSUSE, Debian etc. are far more secure. These distros all have active security mailing lists which provide timely security patches, offer Application whitelisting via AppArmor and/or SELinux and of course, don't run everything as root (honestly, wtf?).

If you value your security, don't use Puppy for anything serious.

Well, I give up.

I have tried for months and invested dozens of hours to get a
machine that runs qubes and it hasn't happened.

So would somebody be willing to go into say pb tech with
different live puppy's on stick (or DVD) and finding what
computers run it.

Puppy was the distro I was wanting to run on my brand new
computer I bought last year. I have been told that it is hard to
find a new computer that won't rtun puppy. My new computer didn't.
Hopefully it is just a freak.

So if you are prepared to do that, could you then let me know at
least two of those computers that should be able to run qubes
according to the hardware specifications at the qubes website.

If nobody is prepared to do that it is more than fine. I will
just buy a computer that runs a windows legacy os.

Hi,

Why do you need to run puppy so much? If its a new computer best to
run a bigger distro. What's the computer? I'm guessing Intel 64bit
but correct me otherwise. You should be able to download Debian and
create a live usb, and install. Seems a waste to buy a new computer
when you already have a new computer. What's the computer running
currently? If its windows10 no point in switching to 7, best to keep
win10 or switch to Linux.

If you can go to pbtech why can't you go to te ata on a Monday or
Friday and get Ian to help?

Cheers,

William
