Puppy Linux 5.0 âLucid Puppyâ Released

,----[ Quote ]
| My initial fears, that the move over to 
| Ubuntu packages would have a serious 
| negative impact on performance and 
| resource usage, seem to have been 
| unfounded. As ever, Puppy booted into a 
| useful and responsive desktop on a test 
| setup with 256MB of RAM. It remains my go 
| to distribution for a certain type of 
| project.


Puppy Linux turns to Ubuntu for version 5.0

| Puppy variants include a Quirky 1.0 
| release intended as an experimental 
| sandbox for new Puppy ideas.


REVIEW: Puppy Arcade 8 (LiveCD 105mb) 

,----[ Quote ]
| Yet another great release for Puppy 
| Arcade.  I like the idea of having a poll 
| for the browser, which means that not only 
| do you get a smaller .iso download, but 
| you donât have to waste your time 
| downloading a browser which you are going 
| to replace anyway.  The size of the 
| download is another massive plus and will 
| have you enjoying emulation in no time at 
| all.  Itâs quite amusing to think that the 
| whole distro is downloaded in 105mb which 
| is less than many PSX games themselves!



Puppy Arcade 6 â The retro pup goes from strength to strength!

,----[ Quote ]
| Wrapped into a small 117mb, Puppy Arcade is
| going from strength to strength.  It bodes
| well for itâs future that so many
| improvements have been made and I would hope
| that Puppy Arcade not only ressurects many
| old machines for retro gaming but also is a
| showcase for the excellent Puppy Linux from
| which its derived from.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
