Puppy Can Bike 5.5

Precise Puppy 5.5 was released on March 10, 2013. It’s based on Ubuntu Precise Pangolin, 12.04.2. I’ve remastered the Puppy operating system and customized it for Canadian localization. A few small programs and scripts 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 5.5 has been named “Puppy Can Bike 5.5”.
