REVIEW: Puppy Arcade 8

Filed under
Linux
Gaming

Puppy Arcade is one of the few Linux distro’s that Openbytes tries to keep following. Since version 5, Puppy Arcade has not only been a favorite with friends and colleagues, but also has a home on a few of my machines around the house that would otherwise be obsolete.

Puppy Arcade is one of the more difficult distro’s to review because of the plethora of systems it covers and often when I try to write about Puppy Arcade, my article turns into individual reviews of the emulation packages it contains. I will try to look at Puppy Arcade as a whole and how it performs in respect of a multiple platform emulator (and desktop distro too) For the purposes of this review, the test machine is a 1.6ghz machine with 1gig of ram and a rather ancient gfx card. I am reviewing this distro on pretty old tech, so its important to keep that in mind to appreciate how good Puppy Arcade actually is.
