I'm posting this from Puppy Fire Hydrant Inferno, which I believe was one of Puppyluvr's creations and dates from about 2008. It was based on Puppy 3 series (3.01 in particular).

Obviously the software's old by today's standards but it all still works as far as I can see. Playing videos in Youtube is difficult though, as the browser (Firefox 2.0.0.9) doesn't seem to recognise HTML5, which most Youtube vids nowadays seem to be encoded in. It also won't read the ext4 file system, which is what I use by default.

A worthwhile experiment anyway, and I like the look of it (better in fact than most modern Pups or other distros).

Another good and not very well known one; I'm posting this from Puppy Cielo 5.2, which is based an early version of Wary (5.0) and probably dates from around 2011-12. Again I wasn't able to play Youtube videos, though this time I could access files on an ext4 partition.

The Fire Hydrant series was another of Ttuuxxx masterpieces.

Thanks! Happy to stand corrected (and apologies to Ttuuxxx too).

Never really tried many of the older Pups. Not yet..!

My all-time fave for a solid, day-to-day Pup which will do everything I need has now switched from Micko's Slacko 5.7.0 to its predecessor, Slacko 5.6.0. But I have to agree with the comments about pemasu's stuff. UPup 'Raring' 3.9.9.2 (2013-ish?) comes a very close second, despite being one of the '9-month wonders' whose repos shut down months before I even joined the Forum.....

My own has been set-up entirely with .pets and SFSs.....and a few items I've installed manually, by 'borrowing' the necessary deps'n'stuff from other Pups. (Like gnome-system-monitor, which was a real bitch to get working; most of the necessary items came from Barry's last 'official' Pup, Precise 571, though I found odd bits & pieces from a variety of sources).

I keep looking at various 4-series Pups, though many seem to be missing basic stuff like the ability to recognise a USB 3.0 adapter card.....or to load SFS packages.

@ darry:-

Hah! That was a good guess, wasn't it? (And at that point, I wasn't even thinking about answering your question, TBH.... Embarassed )

I still stand by my comments, though. Here's my current 'take' on Raring:-

Yeah, it's not too bad, is it? Laughing I think the deep red background 'base' colour, along with the gold pinstriping around my home-made 'docks', gives it a real touch of class. Rather like some of the old steam railway engines had with their company liveries.....

All courtesy of MooiTech's PhotoScape 3.7, running in Racy 5.5.

(Stupid thing is - and I've never figured this out - although PhotoScape runs in every one of my Pups, for reasons that escape me some of the more esoteric functions (like the pinstriping utility) seem to work far better under Racy than they do anywhere else. And that's the oldest Pup in the kennels. Weird.)

You can see I have way too much time on my hands, can't you? Embarassed

Guess you already know Mike, but just in case, in gkrellm you can define names for the temperature readings, such as core and gpu (or radeon/whatever)

A-ha. No, I didn't.....but I do now. Good to know, 'cos for some daft reason my two cores are marked temp1 and temp3 ???

Now I can mark 'em Core1 and Core2, the way I want them. Cheers, mate!

Subject description: wallpapers on Page 5 of topic link
 

Iguleder's GuyDog-5.0.1 that was quite a wonderful pup from 2011.

The 21 pages of postings from 5.0.0 --> 5.0.1 are here. There are some stunning wallpapers offered.

I was drooling about this one, but didn't have a reliable portable CD/DVD burner at the time.
For the security minded... kernel 2.6.39.4 so theres NO TLS1.2 AFAIK.

Regards

Posting from GuyDog-5.0.1. (Atom n270/i915 2Gb mem)
Needs ROX to access internal HDD(SSD) but as CD operated... neat.
