| As compared with earlier candidates, version 4.3 
| of Puppy Linux puts you in total control of 
| choosing the desired packages from various Linux 
| distributions such as Debian, Ubuntu, Arch or 
| Slackware. The Puppy Unleashed build system was 
| replaced by a new one, called Woof, which is 
| capable to process packages from almost any 
| existing Linux distribution.

Thoughts: Puppy Linux 4.3 on Older Laptop

,----[ Quote ]
| So we had our monthly pqlug.org meeting last night.
| So I brought the Dell 8100 to the meeting and showed
| everyone my running version of Puppy.  We all decided
| that we were going to place it on the Dell 5000 so I
| just ejected the CD and away we went with the install.
| In about 5 minutes it was on her laptop and configured
| to work on the internet with a wireless USB key.  All
| was well and she was very happy to have a light
| weighted Linux running on her older machine.
| In conclusion Puppy Linux 4.3 works great!  I am
| leaving the CD in my Dell 8100 and will be using it to
| browse the web and check my gmail account while I
| watch TV... :)

| If all went well, you should be able to use Seamonkey and
| browse the web!


Puppy Linux 4.3 and Woof

,----[ Quote ]
| Puppy Linux 4.3.0 was released several weeks ago and with it came
| several interesting developments. First, this release saw the
| return of Barry Kauler, founder and project lead of Puppy Linux.
| Second, 4.3.0 includes some great new tools that have the
| potential to increase Puppy's usability by empowering developers
| and users with thousands of extra packages.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
