Let's have some fun making kinda Distrowatch poll here (for newbies to get a point of view on puppy world)


I put here most popular puppy distros and their deriviatives (IMHO) among the wide variety of puppy forks famous as pupplets. Suggest your poll option if I forgot something on comments and I put it accordingly.

Slacko 5.6/5.7. They should have their own listing, to distinguish them from earlier and later Slackos.

I'd also add a listing for Saluki/Carolina or add them to Wary/Racy as Racy was their 'parent'.

Edit. While this poll is for "fun", still it can provide some useful information, kind of like a Cubist painting.

Just took a look at your list again. I know that you need to keep it reasonably small, so appreciate why you've combined Lucid and Precise, and Tahrpup and Xenialpup. But FatDog and DebianDog are very different 'beasts'. They aren't even in the same genus. Sort of like having one listing for Zebras and Sea Horses. Laughing

If you need to shorten the list, perhaps do Slacko/Lighthouse as both are based on Slackware. But with a separate Slacko 5.6/5.7 listing. Although now 5 years old --Slacko 5.6's birthday was August 12th-- they are still touted as solid work-horses for almost all computers which have not yet been consigned to landfills. Sad

@takenp

Fatdog and Debiandog are not similar in any way. Why would you group them? Just asking.

It seemed to me Debiandog was based on Fatdog and made by the same person. I see I'm probably wrong. But I cant edit the poll. It became closed after getting results as I understand.

I voted for Tahr, though it was hard to decide between Lucid and Tahr.

Fatdog and debiandog are completely and utterly unrelated and different!

The answer to this question may be hardware related, ie. which Puppy works best on your machine. I only use two Puppys on my 12 year old laptop, ie. Racy 5.5 and Tahr 6.0.5. Both work well but if I have to choose between the two it has to be Tahr mainly because tahr, as is, is more usable with its newer browser and VLC. Absolutely rock solid, so much so that it almost becomes boring to use as nothing ever goes wrong. There's only one irritation with the builtin version of VLC in Tahr, ie. the screensaver can not be disabled from the VLC settings (it doesn't work) you have to toggle it with the screen control application. So Tahr is the best but Racy on the other hand is a lot of fun to use. The whole Racy system is only 105MB (max compressed) in size. Works perfectly on my machine apart from Mplayer which crashes occasionally. I also use Racy when I want to experiment/tinker with stuff. BTW - I didn't vote because tahr and xenial is grouped together in the poll but I have video problems with the latter.

I miss the 2 and 4 series in the list. I would probably go for the 214 Classic Pup with the beetle from ttuuxxx then.
