Thanks Robert123. I'm not running a Puppy Lupu at the moment, but I've grabbed a copy in case I do again. It was my favorite Puppy for a long time.

Yep very stable and fast and found it to have great all round hardware support.

I've been using Lucid 5.25 since 2011 and it's still my favorite pup. In fact it's my favorite Linux distro, period, even after trying some other recent "light" non-systemd distros.

Lucid is stable, runs on almost anything, and has an enormous stock of software. It's not just the official repository, it's the pets from individual users, in these forums and elsewhere. They're not all the latest versions, but who cares?

I may have missed it, but I don't see that level of software support in any of the more recent puppies.

The only reason I'm finally considering a newer pup now is that Lucid 5.25 doesn't seem to speak USB 3.0.

I'm finding I like Tahr 6.0.5 pretty well, and am gradually getting it set up the way I prefer it.

I really wanted to like Slacko 6.3.0, to get further away from Ubuntu, but I just couldn't get it configured to my taste. The big issue is that I prefer Thunar file manager and Rox pinboard together, and I have yet to find a Thunar that works well on Slacko.

Xfm seemed like a kind of OK/acceptable substitute on Slacko, but I got too annoyed with its insistence on nagging me about running as root every time I launched it.

Maybe instead of moving to Tahr, I'll experiment with copying kernels from some of the later pups over top of the Lucid kernel. (Backing up the original kernel first, of course.)

At any rate, my thanks to the Puppy community for all their hard work on this sleek, spirited OS!

You may like to look at these later developed Lucids with later kernels.

Ubuntu packages are still available, in the archives. Just update the PPM in Puppy precise make the repos address changed. If not, pet is available in french forum, was made for Raring by Augras, but works for all Precise Puppies.
Remember, if newer tahrpup & sons prevent you using Your best applications, run a Precise Puppy to retrieve your freedom. Or the excellent DPUP squeeze, so full featured by Pemasu.
Even if you have just bought a brand new laptop, i bet these Puppies will run as well as on older hardware.
pet in "où sont les dépôts Ubuntu" Full topic is French spoken,
Our famous french devs ASRI-EDU and Argolance lately choose to keep Precise 5.7.1 as a base for their last releases, ToOpPy 2.1 and ASRI-edu 310. With no trouble (at least with PPM Ubuntu)
