TEENpup 2009 Legacy was created for the PC User who has 1 or 2 computers at home who wants to do the same basic things most Windows user's do. While it includes applications to allow it to be connected to a office network, TEENpup is aimed more at the home user and not the small business user and has not been tested extensively in a business environment. The main advantage over Windows and some of the bigger Linux distro's out there is speed. Once you get use to TEENpup, you won't be able to stand the waiting for applications to open anymore like you did in the past.

Here are some key features of "TEENpup":

What's New in This Release: [ read full changelog ]

· This time TEENpup has grown to just under 700MB so that it will fit on a CD. As the focus for TEENpup has shifted to a Modern Operating System for older PCs which most likely only came with a CD Drive, it was felt that a 700MB size limit should be adhere to.

· Also to attract users from Windows TEENpup default color scheme has been modeled on some of Vista's coloring. Also the way the menu Applications are worded might seem too simplistic for the average Linux User. It was felt that to win over new users; TEENpup's Applications had to be as easy to access as was possible. To someone new to Linux and coming across for example Applications called GIMP, ROX , GAMBAS, KAFFEINE to name a few, might be put off even opening them and it was felt that what an Application did was more important than its name.

· So this now leads me to some of the Applications included in this release. It was felt that Open Office should be included with its Help Manual as well as being the latest version at time of release ( 3.1 ) as a large number of users, use a PC for Writing, Spreadsheets and Presentations and anything less wouldn't do. KDE's similar Office Applications have been removed. A number of new KDE Applications have been added. Also Pdrive's USB auto mount daemon has been turned on by default, detecting most USB devices that are plugged in. A lot of time has been spent fine tuning little details that make it easier for the average user to use TEENpup.

· Example: Seamonkey will recognize most common attachments in emails and open them when you click on them. No more searching through "bin" folders for the executables, which wouldn't be a hard thing to do for a seasoned Linux user where as a Linux Newbie would fine it almost impossible.

· Those familiar with some of the Applications included in this release will find them to be an older version than is currently available, why? Well the main reasons are because their smaller, have less dependency and due to these reasons run faster on old Hardware and finally I can fit more of them in the iso. Some users will feel I left out an Application which they felt should have been in TEENpup, well a lot of testing of different Applications was done over the last 15 months and for one reason or another it was decided to leave that Application out.

· To those trying this release of TEENpup, I hope you find it modern, useful, reliable and most of all user friendly. Enjoy!
