Quick guide

There are a lot of choices and possibilities within Puppy:
Our latest 'Woof2' built official Puppy 5.3.1 'Slacko' is out and highly Slackware compatible. Recommended for most new users.
Slacko is not compatible with Woof1 built Lucid our recommended Puppy for the last two years. Many utilities from Lucid are available for Slacko in the LupufySlacko package.
Clean installs are recommended for new Puppy versions.
NewA version of Slacko with a newer Linux kernel is being developed.
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 on hardware less than 5 years old and wishing to highly and easily customise, try Saluki.
Expected in 2012 is our first port to specific ARM hardware with PARM for the Raspberry Pi motherboard. Precise Puppy (under development, presently for x86) will be available for ARM powered devices, more powerful than the Raspberry Pi.
