Description: "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."

Pros: Ubuntu packages
Cons: Desktop design is now awfull (SVG icons)

Far beter than the Slackware Puppy (Slacko). However Ubuntu main repository is getting poor too. Multiverse and universe still available make it easy..
Puppy Linux is becoming a Geek OS, Most of its forum Suscribers are linux pupils, not real users.
