Macpup Foxy 3.0 Puppy With Enlightenment Released

November 30, 2009 1 comment

One thing I enjoy about Linux is that is comes in all shapes and sizes. Macpup Foxy 3.0 features the Enlightenment window manager and a Mac OS X-like user interface. Macpup Foxy 3.0 is based on Puppy Linux 4.3.1 which uses the Linux kernel 2.6.30.5. Macpup Foxy 3.0 includes all the applications from Puppy 4.1 and 4.3.1 service pack plus Macpup Foxy 3.0 features Firefox 3.5.4, GIMP 2.6.3, and a few other enhancements. Here’s a short release announcement.

I booted up Macpup Foxy 3.0 in RAM to get a few screenshots and spent only a few minutes playing around. I wasn’t particularly impressed by the desktop feel of the distro out of the box. The brown background with birds didn’t do it for me and my resolution was a bit off. Both of these things were corrected easily though and a window even popped up on startup offering resolution changes which was a nice touch. Another thing worth noting is the application selection in Macpup Foxy 3.0. This is a minimalist distro yet it has a powerhouse of applications to use out of the box.
