Anitaos - Puppy Linux 4 Unleashed Fork


Hi folks,

Just thought I'd let you know about this updated fork of Puppy Linux 4.12 which is a DIY build as you go distro which is ideal for old machines and is very fast. It is Significantly updated.

Here is the link: http://sourceforge.net/projects/anitaos/

So if you have an old machine in the shed or you use something really ram challenged by todays ram hungry distros then this may be for you it follows the kitset model of building your system

Added to the Stable ISO's a Multiuser iso which allows a user to add non-root users which is of course unusual for Puppy Linux based Distros

Does AnitaOS support Floppy drives and give a floppy icon on the desktop?

I ask because I am a regular puppy user and have panasonic cf-48 and a IBM M41 with floppy drives on them
and a case Of Sony IBM disks.

Thanks darry1966. My ancient rigs still see service in the motorcycle shop. Customers play dosbox based games and ThinkTanksDemo on those old kits.

Appreciate your efforts here in the deserts of Texas.

Latest regular AnitaOS with a non-SMP kernel with a Xorg 7.3 is now available this is as usual an LTS release: http://sourceforge.net/projects/anit...atest/download

P.s. Have now added a SMP ISO in the same folder.

Avidemux video editor is removed. FFconvert is there to do the same job. Flburn cdburner also added.
