Puppy Linux 5 Lucid Puppy - Nothing but praise

Filed under
Linux

You all know that I absolutely love Linux Puppy. I've tried Puppy years ago and instantly loved it, loved the precise art of fitting so many great, useful programs and tools into such a tiny package. And now, there's a new reason to love it even more. Version 5.

Puppy Linux has reached its fifth incarnation, with Ubuntu Linux Lucid LTS release as its core. This is an important and smart change. On one hand, you get Puppy's lean, mean ingenuity, tightly packed with awesomeness. On the other, you get Ubuntu's heavyweight simplicity and usability, which has made it the easily most popular Linux distribution over the years. Do you know what this means? The best live CD distribution.

Let's review it.
