My coworker DJ is a puppy fan. He had Puppy on a flash drive and lost the drive
while at lunch a few years ago. I suggested he call Luther and hang up some
signs to report his lost puppy.

+1 for Puppy linux
Meuon helped me set up a handful of installs on 800mhz "thin clients" running on
512mb CF cards back in 2008. I was using them to run a Political Campaign Office
and had a Spreadsheet, WP app, Email, and Browser, and Skype running on each
machine. They could network print and over 5,000 campaign calls were placed from
them using skype.
Not a single crash or Hiccup. 800mhz VIA processors with 256mb ram and a 512mb
CF card. Pretty Damned Impressive.
Puppy is your friend.
