Cons: Some odd package choices. Poorly (not?) designed scripts-as-UI-glue management. "Quirky" (esoteric) and hideous (reminiscent of Win 2 / 95) UI. *ISO's initfs doesn't support GRUB2's loopback

The main cons I have about Quirky: just not enough programs in the repository. A good distro should have many tools and if possible they should be easy enough to install. That's where Quirky in my opinion falls short. Also - has anyone ever used "Osmo" ? It's just NOT working. It won't accept repeating dates such as a simple birthday or anniversary. Useless. And, it's part of every Puppy since day 1. Throw it out and put "orage" in its place. At least the distro will have a calendar with which one can actually work :))
Other than that I quite like Puppy and it has potential, once the potholes in the road are filled up....

a a linux beginner I activated the live session it was very nice but i could not install it to my hard desk because you changed the standard regular installer (from a cd disk)

Quirky 8.1.5 is running well (even in a VM & RDP). Software using Ubuntu repos is also ok.

For experts only. Clumsy and complicated. Full Install doesn't install GRUB? Of what use is that?!
Installer is quite stupid: Install from CD, and it asks you to locate or download the ISO file again!! We booted from the ISO, the required files are in the ISO, you already have them, commence installation!
The Flash Drive image did not work beyond the initial boot-up screen.
Perhaps the author should list the hardware on which release works, it's probably just his own machine.
