editor's review




As its name might suggest to experienced Linux users familiar with the Puppy Linux operating system, Puppeee is a puplet designed from the ground up to be installed on netbook computers or machines with small screens.

Supports netbook computers with Atom and Celeron processors

Puppeee is an open source distribution of Linux that can be downloaded from Softpedia as Live CD ISO images optimized for netbook computers with Atom or Celeron processors. It will run well on both 32-bit and 64-bit hardware platforms.

Features a minimal Live CD boot menu with advanced options

Both Live CDs come with the same boot menu, which has been designed to allow the user to start the live system without too much hassle. It also includes some advanced boot options, such as the ability to fix filesystem errors, copy the contents of the ISO image to RAM, run a memory test, as well as to use the text only mode.

The graphical environment is built around IceWM and Openbox

Before you can access the graphical session, you will be asked to choose a keyboard layout, select a location and set up the timezone, as well as to choose a display server. The graphical environment is built around the IceWM and Openbox window managers and provides users with a traditional layout comprised of a taskbar located on the bottom edge of the screen.

Comes pre-loaded with dozens of open source apps

Among the preinstalled applications, we can mention the AbiWord word processor, Dia diagram creator, Google Chrome web browser, Geany IDE and advanced text editor, Geeqie image viewer, Goggles Music Manager audio player, gFTP file transfer client and Gnumeric spreadsheet editor.

In addition, the Transmission torrent downloader, Pidgin multi-protocol instant messenger, PCManFM file manager, mtPaint graphic editor, HomeBank personal finance manager, Gxine video player, Gtkam webcam viewer and Osmo calendar are also included.
