Quick guide

There is a lot of chice and possibilities within Puppy. Our latest official Puppy 5.3.1 'Slacko' is out and highly Slackware compatible. Recommended for most new users. Slacko is not compatible with Lucid which has been our recommended Puppy for the last two years. Clean installs are recommended for new Puppy versions.
A version of Slacko with a newer Linux kernel is being developed - see below.
For older hardware Wary 5.2 might be more efficient. Puppy Wary is compiled in Puppy using a mature kernel.
Racy combines Wary and the up to date 3.04 Linux kernel. Wary/Racy 5.3 is being developed.
Unique configurations of Puppy (puplets) exist. For those migrating from Windows or hardware less than 5 years old Saluki may be a good choice.
Expected in 2012 is our first port to specific ARM hardware with PARM for the Raspberry Pi motherboard. This will lead to further support for other ARM powered devices.
