Why does Puppy run as root?
Convenience
Puppy users control their environment.
We are designed to load and run from USB or DVD (straight to desktop)
A root running live CD or DVD system remains MORE secure than
an accessible and hackable hard disk install
We are not designed for multi-user usage.
With great power (over your system) comes great responsibility
(for your data).
Puppy users take charge of their computers.

So technically, Puppy is dangerous?
Very. We bypass network security and firewalls
Recommended by security agencies as unhackable when running from DVD
Programs on the CD/DVD are never compromised.
With Puppy, comes great power
in a small package

How can Puppy Luci 5.2 be so small and have so many programs?
We choose simple efficient programs.
Puppy is lean and muscled and compressed and expanded
on the fly.
We would be smaller but other distros packages
are not as efficient as Puppy
Using Ubuntu Meerkat files, though convenient,
is a compromise.

What about tech support?
Try us.
Puppy users are loyal because our forums, wikis, IRC,
blogs and web sites are constantly friendly, updated and improved
