[News] Puppy Linux 4.3 Receives Rave Review

Hash: SHA1

Time for a New Puppy: Puppy Linux 4.3

,----[ Quote ]
| Mac OS X Snow Leopard? Windows 7? Forget it. The coolest OS 
| release of the year is Puppy Linux 4.3. By now you already 
| know that I have a soft spot for Puppy Linux, so for me 
| each new release of this nifty little distro is a cause for 
| a minor celebration. And the freshly-baked Puppy Linux 4.3 
| is no exception. In fact, the previous 4.2 release left me 
| somewhat unimpressed, so I've had especially high hopes for 
| the 4.3 version coordinated by Barry Kauler himself. Let me 
| tell you straight away -- I wasn't disappointed.



Puppy Linux 4.3 Has Been Redesigned from the Roots

,----[ Quote ]
| Barry Kauler is back at the helm of the Puppy Linux project,
| and he just released version 4.3 of the popular lightweight
| Linux distribution. Puppy Linux 4.3 is a massive upgrade from
| the 4.2 series, with almost all the components updated or
| replaced. Also, the whole system through which this Linux
| distribution is being built has been replaced with a completely
| new one, called Woof. The switch imposed the creation of a new
| package management system, called Puppy Package Manager, which
| supports the use of packages from any distribution within
| Puppy.


New version of Puppy Linux mini system

| Version 4.3 of the lean Puppy Linux distribution is now available
| to download. At a size of just about 110 Mbytes, the system with
| its JWM and IceWM window managers offers up to date applications
| and includes many new features. Puppy Linux 4.3 now uses with
| kernel version which includes ext4 filesystem support.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
