Puppy 412 NOP (Nearly Office Pup)Posted on 11-May-2013
Nearly Office Pup is an rather nice XFCE based puplet, so called because it is a no frills pup without office apps. The idea being that you install to USB pendrive and add an SFS file of the office package. Although it can be installed to HD if required.

SoftMaker Free Office 2012Posted on 9-Apr-2013
Here is one I just could not resist packaging, SofMaker Free Office 2012. It's just what the Puppy ordered. A fantastic office suite and what's more we can now read the dreaded docx format documents easily. It should run on most versions of Puppy Linux. Just brilliant!
XScreenSaverPosted on 20-Nov-2012
Puppy doesn't come with a screensaver, so puppyluvr (forum name) compiled XScreenSaver-5.07. Some users were having some difficulties with it so I have repackaged it with the fix described on the forum. XScreenSaver will run at startup.

Webserver Puplets, LAMP and XAMPP.Posted on 01-Dec-2012
Here are a couple of puplets for web developers, webserverpuppy1.iso with Hiawatha and webserverpuppyx1.iso with Apache. Although if you need the latest version of XAMPP for Linux it is very easy to setup on any version of Puppy Linux. If you go for the latest version I would recommend XAMPP Control.

So you don't make as many backups as you should and we are all guilty of this to a greater or lesser extent. Not any more, Snap2 is a simple yet powerful rsync-based backup program that includes an 'Automatic Backup Scheduler'. So not more excuses for losing that data. See the forum of the authors website for more information.

Artha is an English thesaurus that works completely off-line and is based on WordNet. Initially a Linux only package, so popular was it that Windows users even got their own version. Download and have fun.

The cross platform 'Qt4 toolkit' based qbittorrent is a reliable bit torrent client. This is not the latest version but I will try to add a more up to date version in the near future.
