Hmm.... Let me have a think about this.

 

Need I even say it?

 

But there are two versions of it: Slacko Puppy 6.3 and Tahrpup 6.0 CE 

 

 

*Cough, cough...* How many versions, hmm?

 

(If you were to add something like 400 to that wee small figure, you might be getting a bit closer...  :lol: )

 

If you'd like to get a somewhat better idea of the Puppy 'spirit', head on over to the Puppy Forums, lurk a while, soak up the atmosphere, have a good look around.....and enjoy.

Both of these have work well for me when I used 32bit Tahrpup.

 

Hope these help.
