Since Dpup is in fact Debian based I trust that this also mean that a person can use Synaptic. Correct? (A real contender for Antix is that is the case)

I have tried about 10 of Puppy, and I found this remaster the best.
But, I hope you don't mind some complaint, the font in some pet is very small, e.g. Pburn, XaraLx.
And it doesn't improve even I changed the monitor to 800 x 600.
Please let me know how to change these fonts.

Thank you.

A good selection of packages. Grub 1.96 works in dpup whereas Grub 0.97 does not in Puppy. However, Firefox in dpup stalls often just like SeaMonkey in Puppy.

Linux Mint8 and Puppy Linux are the two best distros. I hope support for DivX and Midi (a player and a sequencer that easily use the built-in synthesizers of SoundBlaster cards) will come. Dpup has a nice set of additional features. Congratulations and thanks to all involved with Puppy.

Wine 1.1.29 and 1.1.38 incorrectly display about an half of russian characters (??? instead). Original Puppy 4.3.1 works correctly with the versions of Wine.
