PuppEX Tahr is a remaster of Puppy Linux Tahr 6.0, released on October 28, 2014. PuppEX Tahr/Puppy Tahr is compatible with Ubuntu 14.04 binary packages.
Kernel 3.18.0-puppex is used.
PuppEX uses the original Puppy Tahr Desktop. I have added the file manager PCManFM and LXTerminal. They are more useful than ROX-Filer respectively RXVT, I think.
The ISO file is on the whole 434 MB, which is due to me including NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65, Gimp and compiling tools. Puppy Tahr original is of only 199 MB. PuppEX Tahr is despite this still running as fast as the original, which means it runs very, very fast compared to most other Linux systems. (Puppy/PuppEX runs from RAM).
MOST important CHANGES
I've changed kernel from 3.14.20 to 3.18 and installed NVIDIA Graphics driver 340.65. The Nvidia driver will be used if your computer/card is "modern" enough.
The default language (locale) is set to English.
