Win Puppy Version 2.1 is out.

A lot of linux distros look ugly out of the box.

Microsoft did a good job of making their os look good.

For those of you that wish puppy linux would look more like windows.



This puppy looks a lot like windows 7.




Quick Setup window looks a lot like a "Windows 7".


Icewm version of WinPup. (includes kodi 16 jarvis)

Please resize the your screenshots to a size of maximum 800 pixel width.

Scrolling horizontally is worst-case!

Just tested it! Works great OOTB!

Good show, Lassar! Smile

Your alternative background looks good, too.

Is this just a regular Slacko version with the windows and background theme changed? If so, which Slacko (5.7 or ???) and which kernel is it based off of? And is it 32-bit or 64-bit??

Thanks for any info (also, big thanks for the sha256----everyone should be doing a minimum of sha256 nowadays, md5 and sha1 sums are easily cracked by MITM downloads).

Hi belham2.

It's based on a tahr64, not on a slacko, AFAICT.
As to the kernel version, Lassar will know.
