Exercising, Earning and Learning 3 NOV 2023


While doing my treadmill workout - and earning multiple crypto tokens, I was wondering how I could repurpose three recently acquired and VERY OLD laptops - only 1-2 GB RAM and miniscule HDD storage; meaning, forget running Windows or Mac OS, with the least amount of time and effort.

Then I remembered that Puppy linux was made to run lightning fast straight from a USB - basically "a portable operating system on a stick".



[BTW, there are several such OS distros out there (e.g., Porteus, Slax, or any OS .iso that can be Etcher or Rufus burned to disk and run "live).]

Anyway, Puppy Linux was exactly what was needed to keep the old laptops out of the "hardware graveyard" (aka, the spare bedroom's closet).

May you and yours be well and loving life today.
