Official Puppies

Traditionally, Puppy Linux has used the combination of JWM and Rox Filer Desktop. It persists until this day. Love it or hate it, you can’t argue with the lightness on the system of this combination. It has certainly stood the test of time!

There has been a couple of exceptions to this rule, with some pups offering LXDE or Xfce desktops.
