Classic Pup 214X
Distro & Apps


214X, or Classic Pup, is a Puppy Linux derivative based on Puppy 2.14 and updated with newer applications and incredibly good looks. The project is spearheaded and managed by ttuuxxx, with development help and testing by several others in the Puppy Linux community.

This page mirrors the current version of the distro and provides access to many of the applications and utilities developed during the project. The forum thread is currently in excess of 300 pages and is the longest thread in the forum. That makes this page much easier to navigate than browsing through the entire thread. However, I highly recommend that you check out the thread for additional information on these apps that is not provided here.

SOME of these apps will run on other Puppies and, while many of these are included in the base build of 214X, some are not. Some you've seen before and are available elsewhere, but most of these have been tweaked to look better or work better in 214X, so you might want to check them out here.

Classic Pup currently in revision 10 and is mirrored here. Please see page 1 of the thread for more information.

Puppy Linux is a unique and incredibly customizable linux operating system developed by Barry Kauler. One of it's most attractive features is the way it can be used to revitalize old hardware with current applications. Many users of Puppy enjoy using it in the lightest way possible. To help support that, this website is built and maintained using only basic html code. While Puppy Linux is more than capabable of handling the rigors of today's code and applications, many of us prefer to keep things simple and fast.

Please send comments and suggestions to JD Sullivan (SullySAT) and put the word "Puppy" in the subject line.
