ToOpPy – a free multilingual Linux distribution, a Puppy Linux-based operating system working completely in RAM, that can be shortly described as lightweight, reliable, stable, very fast and portable.

ToOpPy Linux offers the JWM window manager, the ROX file manager and “2PDE”, a complete set of applications to easily customize your Desktop Environment.

Puppy designed by Barry Kauler (and ToOpPy is one of its adaptations), belongs to this very large and prolific family, and, despite resources out of all proportion to those available to their big sisters, manages to produce quality work.

ToOpPy LINUX can run on relatively old machines whose hardware configuration is wrongly and for purely commercial purposes considered “obsolete” (insufficient processor / components / memory …) or the operating system (Windows XP, etc.)) almost more usable.

RoninOS

RoninOS

Web site: sourceforge.net/projects/roninos/
Origin: ?
Category: Desktop
Desktop environment: LXDE
Architecture: x86_64
Based on: Debian
Wikipedia:
Media: Live DVD
The last version | Released: 071919 | July 19, 2019

RoninOS – the “Masterless Distro” based on Debian Bullseye/Sid, Linux Live Kit and the LXDE desktop. A Debian based Live distro that is able to be persistent off usb or hard drive, installable to hard drive in “frugal” mode or full install to hard drive or play live in either default or toram mode with/without persistence and without mounting or changing any hard drive partitions, etc and will run off a ntfs/fat32 or ext2/3/4 formatted partitions using Grub, Syslinux or Extlinux.

Goals – To be totally free to boot Live off various environments and computers without harming or changing anything on said systems (unless you want to), to have automatic persistency across reboots and boot to ram mode. Also, to be able to be installed manually in either frugal mode or true hard drive install mode as a Debian install.

Dual Kernel – RoninOS comes with not only the latest Buster/Sid kernel but also the latest Xanmod kernel, you may choose either at boot menu.

Networking – WICD may not pick up your ethernet/wireless so use Ceni available in the main menu/internet, note you may be auto connected at boot but WICD may not show it.

Cheatcodes – Since RoninOS is based off of and runs like Slax, cheatcodes such as persistence, toram and others like load=module_name or noload=module_name etc are possible, some cheatcodes no longer work. Cheatcodes for toram and persistence and possibly others can be combined, ie “slax.flags=perch,toram” will boot it persistent and toram. You may edit the boot codes at the boot screen by hitting TAB button if using syslinux/extlinux or e if using grub. You can also directly edit syslinux.cfg/grub.cfg during live session (as root).

Passwords are root=root and user live=live

The project founder is Bryan Starr.

Big Linux 2.x series offered 4 desktops environments: Gnome, KDE, IceWM and Fluxbox, in addition to a large amount of games and programs, but the main highlight was availability of 3D simulation features for KDE and Gnome environments. It was the first distribution which offered 3D effects on a single CD (?).

Big Linux 3 series was more focused on stability and ease of updating; with that released only two desktops were available. It also reduced the number of programs available on CD. The 3 version was using packages from Debian and Ubuntu.

The first stable version of 4.x was released in August 2008.
