Linux发行,Puppy Linux 6.3 发布

jopen 5年前

Puppy Linux是另外一种Linux发行。它的不同之处在于,Puppy是格外的小,然而又充满了特性。Puppy能从64M的存储设备启动,并且,整套系统都能在内存中运行。有很多自启动运行光盘的Linux发行,它们需要不停地从光盘读取数据才能运行,Puppy与它们不一样,Puppy整个装载在内存中。这意味着,所有的应用程序一眨眼的功夫就能启动,并且立即对用户的输入作出响应。Puppy Linux能从flash卡或者是任何的USB存储设备启动(这是flash-Puppy),或者光盘(这是live-Puppy),或者Zip disk及LS/120/240 Superdisk(这是zippy-Puppy),或者软盘(这是floppy-Puppy),或者硬盘(这是hard-Puppy)。它甚至可以使用一张多区段烧录的CD-R/DVD-R以将所有内容保存回CD/DVD中。
It has been awhile since the last announcement of an official release of Puppy Linux, 6.0.3 "Tahrpup", starting with 6.0 in October 2014:

Mick Amadio, the coordinator for Puppy built from Slackware 14.1 binary packages, has brought Puppy to a new release, version 6.3. This is distinct from Puppy 6.0.x, which is built from Ubuntu Trusty Tahr binary packages, coordinated by Phil Broughton. Mick coordinated Puppy 5.7.x which is also built with Slackware packages.
For the first time, Puppy is released in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.
