Puppy Linux

Last Update: 2018-03-24 02:03 UTC


Puppy Linux is yet another Linux distribution. What's different here is that Puppy is extraordinarily small, yet quite full-featured. Puppy boots into a ramdisk and, unlike live CD distributions that have to keep pulling stuff off the CD, it loads into RAM. This means that all applications start in the blink of an eye and respond to user input instantly. Puppy Linux has the ability to boot off a flash card or any USB memory device, CDROM, Zip disk or LS/120/240 Superdisk, floppy disks, internal hard drive. It can even use a multisession formatted CD-RW/DVD-RW to save everything back to the CD/DVD with no hard drive required at all.

Popularity (hits per day): 12 months: 23 (405), 6 months: 20 (456), 3 months: 22 (416), 4 weeks: 20 (420), 1 week: 25 (394)

Average visitor rating: 9.31/10 from 59 review(s).

Table Notes and Explanations

(Please refer to the table below.)
  • Select view:
  • To compare the software in this project to the software available in other distributions, please see our Compare Packages page.
  • Notes: In case where multiple versions of a package are shipped with a distribution, only the default version appears in the table. For indication about the GNOME version, please check the "nautilus" and "gnome-shell" packages. The Apache web server is listed as "httpd" and the Linux kernel is listed as "linux". The KDE desktop is represented by the "plasma-desktop" package and the Xfce desktop by the "xfdesktop" package.
  • Colour scheme: green text = latest stable version, red text = development or beta version. The function determining beta versions is not 100% reliable due to a wide variety of versioning schemes.

I use Puppy Linux since version 4.2 up to tahr 6.0.5 ... super fast booting within 35 seconds ... works perfect with older hardware like single and dual core cpu laptops and 1gb ram ... (up to 4-core phenom with 8gb ) ...

good software choices like abiword and gnumeric built in ... some software ist missing like xfe, conky ... but ubuntu and debian repositories are easy to install ...

perfect for text, stylesheet, internet browsing ...

easy network attach with cable and w-lan ... singe user concept in puppy is perfect for most end user worldwide ...

BEST SMALL LINUX distro for me ... so keep on developing guys

:-D

I just started with Puppy Linux in 2010 as a complete newbie to GNU/Linux. My first version ever was Muppy Linux 0.83. On my search for some updated programs I found the Puppy Linux forum at: http://murga-linux.com/puppy/ which I joined in September 2011.

Meanwhile I wrote a lots of Programs especially for Puppy Linux and created some own versions to be published, known as The LazY Puppy.

Today I'm a full time user of my own built of Tahr Puppy 6.0.2 calling it LazY Puppy Art Studio, which is a complete operating system for doing MIDI- and Audiorecordings, Videoediting, Graphics plus many more. All in one sized at 450 MB, running as root and totally in RAM only.

Don't want to use any other operating system never more.

Love it!

RSH / LazY Puppy

There is much room for improvement with the different Puppy versions many of them have not been updated in a few years so I am looking forward to newer versions with improvements...
