Puppy Linux – Puppy Arcade 5 Super Fast Game Emulator

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

We’ve been singing the praises of Puppy Linux (Review) for some time now. We love to hear about applications and new ways to use this great and fast linux distribution.

Scott Jarvis sent us info on his just released Puppy Arcade 5, a Puppy Linux flavor with a retro video game emulation based on TurboPup Xtreme (arguably the fastest Puppy derivative). Thanks to Scott, you can now download the Puppy distro along with a ton of game emulators. These tiny game emulators, such as Amiga, Atari, Nintendo, and many others, are very suitable for a compact distro like Puppy. Many of the emulators were written over 20 years ago, but they still serve up a good time. This is an especially great experience for those of us who lived through the “Frogger” days.

Open Source Router Connects US, Australia

The ONOS Project and partners said Wednesday they have demonstrated the real-world practicality of using a router with open source software to connect networks in Australia and the US. The test validates the vision of SDN, open source for carriers, as well as ON.Lab's ONOS network operating system, according to one of its coordinators. "SDN is about disaggregation of closed, proprietary boxes and separating of forwarding planes, control planes and applications," says Guru Parulkar, executive director and board member of ON.Lab , which coordinates ONOS development. The communications test between Australia and the US achieved just that, he says.
