Continuous Improvement to Official Puppy with Stardust 4.3.1

March 12, 2010 - Official Puppy gets continuous improvement with Zigbert's Stardust 4.3.1, now version 013.

Stardust 4.3.1 desktop


Focus on desktop flow and ease of use.
- Desktop in DeepThought taken to next stage.
- Cleanup in apps, menus and kilobytes.

BE AWARE!!! If you have Puppy installed, you MUST run this with the prefix 'puppy pfix=ram'. Else, the Stardust desktop will not install.

For version 013, I encourage all users to NOT use Puppy Stardust, but instead help technosaurus with Puppy 4.4.


Get the latest Stardust 13 here (user=puppy password=linux). ISO is 99 Mb with md5sum = ef972b75074ab2a34e8b38797fa91fc8

See VERSION 13 Forum Post for details.
