Release Notes

Quirky puppy is this the right puppy for you.


Quirky came out around the same time as the new Ubuntu based puppies and nearly became puppy 5. Quirky took some time to get of the ground but but now it has developing steadily. The main thing with quirky seems to be that each new version is getting smaller and smaller. Following the trend that puppy was founded on. The original version of quirky looks, feels and runs like an optimized puppy 431 and was a good start.

One track is the NOP (no office pup) quirky. NOP is a small fast os where everything you need to do can be done through the web browser. These days with as we can do more things online there is less need for apps installed. With the invention of Cloud Computing today you can edit and store your document, read, edit and send emails (web mail), store files and even more all online. Google are taking full advantage of this. Nop can be easily configured to access any online website eg. googles various different services such as google docs, gmail, google images etc.
