Puppy NOP ("Nearly Office Pup") is a version of the Puppy Linux operating system with several added features, put together by Puppy-enthusiast & aerospace engineer Gray. It uses the Xfce desktop environment and it is prepared for the addition of your choice of office productivity software: OpenOffice.org or goffice (AbiWord, Gnumeric, Inkscape Lite), in the form of a Puppy expansion file (.sfs file) you add yourself. It also has several things removed to preserve a small size. See this Forum thread about Puppy NOPfor more information. There is also an experimental version of NOP that includes the Compiz-Fusion window manager, called Wobbly NOP (see below).
