Puppy Linux breaths educational life into old PCs[edit]

Puppy runs good even with only 64MB RAM replacing Win95 in old machines and is a very good OS replacement for pre Pentium III era machines or anything with 128MB of RAM or less. Installing some educational software packages in Puppy can be of great value in educational environments like (pre)schools etc.
