Given the existential crisis going on in the Project Thread "Can Someone Define: What is Puppy?", I thought what better time than now to launch a little game that both serves a purpose or reminding us and also can provide a little fun.

The objective: NAME THAT PUPPY. Screen snapshots (of the stock DE booted up plus slowly revealed apps) will be provided now, then (if needed) tomorrow & the day after until the right answer is provided or the game ends on Friday with the exact puppy distro version revealed. I cannot give any more clues than this----every puppy (yup, you heard right) every puppy in existence, since the beginning, is fair game.

Here we go.. Good luck!! (Hint: if pulling guesses out your rear, try to provide a little justification for them by either saying what else (i.e app versions, icons, or whatever) it was that led you to your guess)

Haha, seems like fun Belham.

I really want to say one of the first Quirkys from BarryK. I really should know though, as this is one of the Puppies I used to use daily ugh. Embarassed

Too Easy!
Puppy 4.3 - 4.31, the first of the woof built puppies! and still one of my favourites. Very Happy

I remember that desktop well, also still one of my favourites. Doesn't seem that long ago.

Darn, figured this one might be too easy but wasn't sure. Smile Keep forgetting there's still quite of lot of other long timers & devotees here.

Yup, you guys nailed it: It is the 4.31 ISO, one of Barry's most beautiful works back then. I've still got it on a 128MG compact flash card and it still screams (in terms of speed) and watching Seamonkey snap open, among other things.

Below is what was going to be my other two (picture) clues, in order of release (doing them one at a time):

Ok, stay tuned----tonight I will do another, sticking to the same format (showing the first boot up desktop screen that we saw when the creator released it), and also giving other program and/or script hints residing in it. This time I'm going to dig a little more deeper and a little more obscure Twisted Evil , but still, for us devoted puppy-murga-linux bobbleheads, it too will probably jump out.


P.S. If anyone wants to jump in with theirs before I do another tonight, by all means please, please do so. We keep trying new games until we solve them, and then the next one can come. Thus, this thread is welcome & open for everyone to contribute both as '[i]game player' and 'mystery game OS originator'. Over the past 15 years there's been such a flowering of puppies it is almost magical, our choices are many, and it's a great way to remember what happened along those years as Puppy Linux came to be where it is today Very Happy[/i]

Ok, here we go. Game 2. I intentionally did the first one in the mainstream, hoping to generate interest. But (for some) these will keep getting increasingly harder, and as nic007 suggests, in later on games I will veer into osbcure wilds of some of our pups over the years (I am going to enlist Pelo, haha, because he finds pups that are way out there and long ago neglected). Anyway, for Name That Puppy - Game 2, here's the First Clue, what you're greeted with upon first boot (after the standard pupsetup that all pups have):

Nice idea belham! Hmm... the third clue reminds me of Lucid, but it think 5.2.8 came with Dillo. nic007 had to make it hard for us... Laughing

OK, I shouldn't have bragged about pup431 being too easy. Embarassed

This is one of the 10 early Quirkys, but I can't remember which one.

So far, you guys are whiffing at the plate and/or making contact but hitting foul balls. Thus, here's the 4th clue!
