Quick Thoughts on Puppy Linux and Puppy 5.2

Filed under
Linux

In recent years I've grown to like Puppy Linux. I can't say that its my favorite "mini" distro, but it serves its purpose. There are some key features that really hold this distro back. They may seem trivial, but they matter to the end users. So has Puppy Linux 5.2 fixed these issues or does it still lack the basics?

Something I always dreaded about Puppy Linux was the general layout and GUI of the system. Previous versions of the OS used JWM and iceWM. These do make the OS faster and allows you to run it on low systems specs, but its failure is the horrible looking design.

Puppy 5.2 sort of fixes the beauty issue. It appears that Puppy 5.2 is now using OpenBox for the window manager. This paired with the new fbPanel, equals for a better user experience.
