Puppy 5.3 Beta 5++ Download

'What is Slacko'?
Puppy 5.3 uses Puppy code and continues the Lucid tradition but uses more efficient Slackware rather than Ubuntu binaries along with the latest releases of Woof
Slacko uses Puppy scripts, programs and Slackware binaries and we call this an Spup. Slacko offers high compatibility with Slackware for developers.

How does this fit in with other Puppy versions?
Previous versions of Puppy are Wary, a conservative design for older hardware, Lucid Puppy 528 and Racy. Quirky is used to test new ideas from Barry Kauler, the original creator of Puppy.
Dpup (Puppy + Debian) is designated as Puppy 6, currently being developed by Dejan555 and Iguleder
Saluki Puppy rewrite is likely to move up to Puppy 7
Puppy 8 is likely to offer x86, ARM and 64 bit versions and have support for tablet, phone, touch, cloud and Android features
