Barry Kauler has announced the release of Puppy Linux 6.0 “Tahrpup” edition, a minimalist distribution compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 binary packages: “We have another official Puppy Linux release. Since I retired from developing Puppy Linux early in 2014, keen members of the Puppy community forked my Woof Puppy builder, naming it woof-CE. Since then, 01micko has been active with a Puppy built from Slackware packages, named ‘Slacko Puppy’. The guys have also been working on another pup, built from Ubuntu ‘Trusty Tahr’ binary packages, under the leadership of Phil Broughton and this has now reached release status. It is named ‘Tahrpup’ and is version 6.0. Tahrpup is an official release of Puppy Linux for those who would like the package manager to have compatibility with the large collection of packages in the Ubuntu repository.

Some screen Shots:
I find that this newest version of Puppy needs the Package Manager Configured , and then the update manager will properly find the package repositorys.
This version runs fantastic, and Works on old and new architechture very well. I am running it on a 4 gig USB flash drive and posting this blog.
To use Puppy , and other Linux Distros ” You will need Lili USB creator.
