Which puppy linux is the best? Why?

Slackware?
Ubuntu version?
Fat dog?
Any other puppy version?
Gaming version puppy?

32bit?
64bit?

Please let us know all about puppy versions based on your
preference
and personal experience...

Which version has more softwares/apps and games? This is not about pre-installed apps...

Is there any good heavy weight puppy with 1 GB ram being enough?

What about more and more apps? Which version has it all?

How could anyone tell you not knowing:
What hardware you have;
What you want to to with puppy

Try variouw puppies and answer your own question, based on your own unique situation.

Good Luck

I want to know about pups in general... irrespective of hardware.
You can give a description of a pup and specify what's required.
Thanks.

Based upon your question, @TLChost ask same questions most of us need to give a basic answer.

But, I will try to guess an insight based upon your opening post by focusing on what I show, from you, above.

Assumption
    You have a 64bit PC with at least 1GB of RAM.
One solution is this ===> LIghtHouse64 found here.

It has 2 versions which should be comfortable on your PC and address your desires for out-of-the-box (OOTB) apps.
  • The BASE version will present great speed and good abhesion to your hardware.
  • The MARINER is so fully-featured that you may find no need to install anything in its 1st year of use.
Download either or both, ISOS. Burn them to DVDs. Boot and run. There is really no need to place anything onto your hard-drive as everything can be done from the DVD. But, that's a choice you can make after booting.

Lastly, should you like Mariner, I would encourage you to add another bump of RAM to your PC...if possible.

Hope this helps to give you a comfortable start, understanding and use.

LightHouse64 is a Slackware version! There is also Slacko and Slacko64 which are also Slackware versions. And there are many derivatives which use these as their base.

Why not try some of the PUPs you find here if you dont want a recommendation. Or here. Lots of excellent selections contributed by members for your use.

Hope this helps

LegacyOS 2.1 LTS is a pretty full-featured Puppy. John biles has loaded it with lots of apps and stuff for older computers. It doesn't support wifi though (I think).
That doesn't bother me, since I'm still stuck on dialup Laughing

Anyhow,..I've run Legacy on an old computer I have, that has only 512Mb ram,...and it ran really well. It's got apps for about anything you can imagine. There's also a repository for it, that has a lot of games to add.

I'm finding that Upup's ubuntu repo access is very handy. Upup Precise is my current favourite - flexible, extensible, runs in 512mb ram. Pemasu (its creator) has included lots of useful features. See http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=84944

@way12go it all depends on what you want to do.

Try a few and you will soon have a favourite.
