A new video game emulation based live CD... Based on TurboPup Xtreme (one of the fastest linux distros around).
Puppy Arcade 7 can play games from a variety systems, using apps called 'emulators', which load 'roms' (the actual games). To play games: Just load an emulator, optionally choose some settings, and select a rom to play.
If you are new to Linux, better yet new to emulation, this is your best rout. It makes both subjects painless. Puppy arcade is tiny in size for what its worth. A whopping 105mb.
This thing is light weight and extremely quick. Once you boot up its running in RAM. Its very fast. Running an OS in RAM is like going from 56k to a T3. You can load this bad boy up on a USB stick and carry it around with you if need be.
Puppy Arcade works great on PCs - both new and old. But if you have an Eee PC, you might like to try Puppeee Arcade, which is perfect for your netbook.
