Barry Kauler, the creator of the Puppy Linux computer operating system, has had the great pleasure of announcing today, November 17, the release and immediate availability for download of Puppy Linux 6.3 “Slacko.”
According to Mr. Kauler, Puppy Linux 6.3 “Slacko” has been built from the binary TXZ packages of the Slackware 14.1 GNU/Linux operating system, and it is available, for the first time, as two Live ISO images, one for each of the supported hardware architectures, 32-bit and 64-bit (Intel (IA64) or AMD (amd64)).
“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,” says Barry Kauler. “For the first time, Puppy is released in both 32-bit and 64-bit versions.”
