Puppy Version Index

Versions - Quick guide
There are a lot of different builds of Puppy, giving you many choices and possibilities:
Puppy 5.3.3 'Slacko' is our latest 'Woof2' built official Puppy, it is highly Slackware compatible. Recommended for most new users. Also available is a 5.3.3 Puppy Slacko version with ALL the software included FatSlacko. Also available is a cut down 99MB version
For efficiency on older hardware try Wary 5.3. Puppy Wary is compiled in Puppy using a mature kernel. Racy 5.3 combines Wary and the up to date 3.04 Linux kernel.
There is a big list of different Puppy versions, also see versions under development.
