The team behind the Puppy Linux project announced, on March 27th, the release of Puppy Linux 4.2 "Deep Thought." "Puppy 4.2 "Deep Thought" is the first Official non-CE version of Puppy without Barry Kauler making the final choices since its inception. The release has been a truly collaborative effort." said Warren Willson in the official release announcement.
