DistroWatch.com: Legacy OS

Legacy OS

Last Update: 2017-09-14 02:49 UTC


Legacy OS (formerly TEENpup Linux) is a distribution based on Puppy Linux. Although the original concept was to create a flavour of Puppy Linux with more applications and a more appealing desktop aimed at teenage users, Legacy OS has now grown to become a general purpose distribution. It comes with a large number of applications, browser plugins and media codecs as standard software. Each new release of Legacy OS is about refining an operating system based on a system core from 2007, meaning core packages such as the Linux kernel, are a decade old. Legacy OS is intended to be installed on older computers, such as Pentium 3/4 machines.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 168 (50), 6 months: 193 (40), 3 months: 136 (59), 4 weeks: 68 (163), 1 week: 121 (61)

Average visitor rating: 4.5/10 from 2 review(s).
