412 Collection UpdatePosted on 12-Nov-2013
If you visit regularly looking for new additions then I apologise for this. Unfortunately I have had to use that other OS, Windows for the time being, the problem being I am unable to dual boot with Puppy 412 on my newish PC. Hopefully this will only be a temporary situation and will be resolved in the new year.
Sorry if this has caused any inconvenience.
GrafX2Posted on 2-Jul-2013
Came across Grafx2 on the forum and thought it looked interesting. GrafX2 is a bitmap paint program inspired by the Amiga program Deluxe Paint and has been ported to many platforms. It is used mainly for pixel art and there is lots of information and documentation on Google Code. You can also check out the forum thread.

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.
