Puppy Can Bike 5.4.3

Puppy Can Bike is the CANbike.ca remastered version of Puppy linux and it’s variants.

Puppy linux is a small portable Linux operating that can be run entirely as a Live CD or as a Live USB. In other words, the entire operating system runs off a CD or a USB flash drive. No hard drive is required on the computer.

It’s built around small efficient but powerful programs to minimize hardware requirement. In other words, it runs well on older hardware and even better on newer hardware. In addition, due to the small size of the OS, it can be run entirely from RAM. According to the Minimum System Requirements, the OS has been run off a 333MHz CPU with 64MB of RAM.

Puppy Linux Version 5.4.3

Precise Puppy 5.4.3 was released on December 17, 2012. It’s based on Ubuntu Precise Pangolin 12.04.1. I’ve remastered the Puppy operating system and customized it for Canadian localization. A few small programs were also added to the remastered version. The latest version of Puppy Linux can be found here. The CANbike.ca remastered version of Precise Puppy 5.4.3 has been named “Puppy Can Bike 5.4.3”.
