INSTALL QUIRKY (TRY THE INSTALL AT YOUR OWN RISK!)
To be able to use Quirky 7.0.3, you must install it WHILE USING LINUX. An easy way to get into Linux is to install it in Windows (XP, Vista or 7) with this build of Puppy.
Use GParted (under the System menu) to build a Linux partition of at least 2 GB (the safest is to use a flash drive for this).
Follow the install instructions.
Note: Do not forget to have Quirky check for updates after successfully booting it.

October 26, 2014 - QUICK UPDATE: Fatdog64 700 beta 2 is released, see the Forum discussion.
Since July 2010, Kirk and Jamesbond have been releasing new versions and updates of Fatdog64 (64-bit Puppy Linux). Each major release has matching PETs and SFSs. Go to Fatdog64's website for a quick start.
The Linux kernel is always the cutting-edge version at the time of release and the window manager is Openbox /LXPanel. Fatdog has always included the latest Firefox, GIMP (image editor), and KINO (video editor). Its default wallpaper started with the classic Seagull that was with Puppy Linux version 1. Fatdog may be traditional in looks but it is bleeding-edge in content!
Download the newest ISO from ibiblio (click here to open the ISO folder) - note that the most recent build uses the highest version number. Additional packages like PETs are installed from the package manager, while SFS can be downloaded from here - to use SFS, copy to /mnt/home and reboot (this assumes that you are already using a save file). Read here about the SFS.

August 17, 2011 - Lucid Puppy Coordinator Playdayz announced: "[Lucid Puppy] 5.2.8 is the fastest, friendliest, and most fun Lucid yet. It is the fastest because it is the first Lucid [Puppy] to use the C and ffmpeg libraries optimized for i686 computers .. It is the friendliest because special attention has been devoted to the user experience.. 5.2.8 uses the Roxterm console which has copy and paste and other features like a text editor.. uses an entirely new Control Panel that makes it easier to customize and configure Lucid to one’s liking.. 5.2.8 includes more wallpapers and themes than any previous Lucid."
"In addition to the faster libraries, there are new and updated firmware and drivers for many devices, courtesy of forum member tempestuous. Further, the hardware detection and configuration routines have been extensively tested and enhanced by forum member rerwin.. Finally, the overall look and feel, the friendly and fun stuff, has been influenced by forum member pemasu [in whose] honor, [Lucid Puppy] 5.2.8 is nicknamed Finlandia."
