Puppy NOP ("Nearly Office Pup"), developed by aerospace engineer Gray, featuring the Xfce desktop environment
Nearly Office Pup is an XFCE based puplet, so called because it is a no frills pup without office apps. The idea being that you install to USB pendrive and add an SFS file of the office package.
Racy NOP 5.2.2 is based on the recently released Puppy Racy 5.2.2 with JWM and Rox removed and replaced with XFCE4.6.2 and Thunar.

Compiz-Fusion (a compositing window manager capable of 3D effects) is not included in NOP, but user tombh has successfully installed it in NOP. See this forum thread for a step-by-step howto and more info. Or see Wobbly NOP below
