Puppy Linux 412 is an
operating system that supports many vintage computers, including
Pentium II-era machines.
Special thanks to tuxtoo, who has turned
the 412 Collection over to us. We wish him the best, and appreciate
his assistance during this transition.

Updated office appsPosted on 22-Apr-2015
LibreOffice 3.4.6 (.sfs 3.0) and smaller SoftMaker FreeOffice 2012 .pets replace the previous office-app .pets that were hosted here. (Because of their size, they could cause problems during installation.) Also, SoftMaker's TextMaker Free is now available as a stand-alone .pet.

Updated versions of Gimp-2.4.5Posted on 14-Jan-2015
tuxtoo has assisted us in repackaging Gimp-2.4.5, originally prepared by ttuuxxx.
These full and lite versions contain several extras:
- Gimp Save-for-web for reducing image file size.
- High-pass filter, which sharpens images and is easier to use than USM (unsharp mask).
- Simulated green, orange, red and yellow filters to convert colour images to black and white with simulated colour filters.
- Puppy Gimp splash screen.
- Gutenprint in the Print menu.
- Print a CD label in Xtns / Misc / CD label.
- libgio-2.0 (146K) to stop dependency error.

Here's a rather nice Xfce puplet from mikeb. It's based on Puppy 412, and includes Gimp-2.4.6 and a very nice Dropbox GUI, plus other goodies.
FlBurn is a CD burner packaged by darry1966. It's very simple, and works well with ISOs and older pups on low-RAM hardware.
