Your thoughts regarding 4.2.1 and 5.2.8 are identical to mine. These were masterpieces. I think on that basis I am going to have to pay some attention to LXpup in case I like that as well!

Truly ICPUG!... Jejy69 is a veritable genius when it comes to putting a puplet together! Shocked I believe that if he'd continue to hang in there - and if someone with a vast, solid, well-grounded knowledge of Linux in general and Puppy in specific really took him under their wing as their apprentice, then we'd have another MU, or WhoDo, rerwin, or possibly even the Master himself - BarryK! - running around this forum. I dare say Jejy69's brilliance is this good.

ATM I've been using his LXpup-13.01-FULL. This has the complete LXDE desktop as well as XFCE-4.10, along with Mate-1.4.2 ( I'm a bit cloudy as to Mate's version number... sorry. ) I don't think I've enjoyed a Puplet as much as I have this one! It has kept me playing around literally for hours on this machine! Cool I have truly longed for such a computer for years - and now I finally have one!

He also makes a far smaller variety which I believe is named LXpup-13.01 weighing in at 189megs and has all of Puppy's regular software plus the full LXDE desktop environment. What a beauty!

Once again I'm rambling on. This is what I get for only sleeping a few hours at night. LOL!! Laughing

I will have to take a look at LXpup. As I already said, the pup I use the most is lucid 5.2.8. Right now I am using Mint 14 xfce as well as Linux lite 1.0.4. But I always seem to go back to puppy.

The only issues I have with puppy is the availability of software and if I run a frugal install always adjusting the size of the ... I forgot the word for it. Anyway that's why I prefer full installs. I know that a large part of it is my own ignorance but I would really love to address these two issues.

I think it is just a habit. I happen to have most installed
on that one had I done the same on another puppy
then that one had been my fave. Just now it is Lupu 528-005

I really like Lupu 528-005, but am looking at other Pups because I despise ROX. Hate ROX. Can't stand Rox.

I came to Puppy just a short while before 4.2 and agree with you about 4.2.1, I loved it. I had a full install on my laptop I had at the time.

I am currently using LXpup-13.01-FULL (MATE)..it's a fantastic derivative.

I absolutely agree with your comments regarding Jejy69, he will only become more brilliant as his knowledge increases.

I like racy 5.5, it's fast and it doesn't have those huge (cra*) files : icu and llvm (bloat...). Now the remaining bloat is seamonkey but dillo is not ready yet. Another bloat is flashplayer. Another bloat is abiword, but no smaller replacement to write doc and rtf.

Still keep going back to Luci 529. One reason, look at these two screenies of The Jack. One looks "blockier" on most distros I have tried, the "smoother" one is the Luci 529. Same version of Jack, same snapshot parameters.
I use Xorghigh on 529 and Mesa on most of the rest, maybe it is the typeface or something.
But that three headed dog is magic..in lots of ways.

Subject description: Safe, very safe.
 

Slacko 5.3.3 fails increasing my storage file
Slacko 5.5 is too new to know if bugs inside, and repository not yer explored.
Slacko is safe.
But what about Legacy os mini 4 ? (based on Puppy 421, isn'nt it a little bit too old ? )
Lucid, precise, reserve, can we really use the huge reposiries depandancies. Please make pets, Prepare the job for us. I cannot choose which dependancies i need or not, so i keep all of them and.... the thing does not work (Orca).

Suite office : well, but with a computer, we do other things, like improving our videos, and there, the offer is old and poor and sad...

The spirit has changed, people surf on the cloud.
