=====Puppy Linux 5 series=====
Puppy 5 is based on a project called Woof which is designed to assemble a Puppy Linux distribution from the packages of other Linux distributions. Woof includes some binaries and software derived from Ubuntu, Debian, Slackware, T2 SDE, or Arch repositories. Puppy 5 came with a stripped down version of the Midori browser to be used for reading help files and a choice of web browsers to be installed, including Chromium, Firefox, SeaMonkey Internet Suite, Iron and Opera.
Puppy 5 introduced [[Quickpet]].

Additions:
Lupu is not a bad idea for a puppy Linux os. It can run applications from another bigger os (ubuntu). In theory this is a good idea as it will potentially run them better using a lighter base. and pupy linux does not need to wright the applications them selves.
Also installing a lot of ubuntu apps results in the puppy os itself becoming Bloated. By bloated I mean that is becomes slower and more unstable.
So you may by all means continue to run lupu or another puppy 5 version. Just remember that you may run into some of these issues I have along the way.
there have been several versions of lupu created now and things are advancing in a good way. there are now custom .pet apps (.pets are puppy linux specific application installers). Find any that have lucid .pet or just .pet [[http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-5/ click here]] and for general Woof pets that should work [[http://distro.ibiblio.org/pub/linux/distributions/puppylinux/pet_packages-woof/ click here ]]
So is this the best puppy os for you.
======WARNING======
Install ubuntu apps at your own risk. not all of them will work. remember if you really want to run ubuntu applications consider installing ubuntu itself the applications are designed to run in there native ubuntu os.
