Quirky Linux 7.1, distribution for Android developers

Puppy Linux Lucid

Perhaps this screen sounds familiar to you, it is indeed Lucid Puppy, a variant of the famous Puppy Linux, today we are going to talk about its sister project created by the same Puppy developers, Quirky Linux, which focuses on Android application developers, using also the interface that some Puppy Linux use JWM

Of the creators of Puppy Linux, the famous distribution of low requirements, comes Quirky Linux, a very peculiar distribution (as its name Quirky indicates), and that is already in version 7.1,

Quirky Linux is a distribution created to make life easier for application developers for the Android operating system, having everything you need to become a successful Google Play Store programmer.

As for the functions and applications that it brings, they are the following:

  • Android SDK(could not miss)
  • Oracle Java Development Kit
  • Inventor App
  • Android Studio
  • Window manager jwm
  • LiveCodeTools
  • File manager ROX

The creators of Puppy Linux have also worked with this distribution, in the first place tAll Quirky Linux packages are embedded in the ISO image, which makes it very comfortable for the user, secondly thanks to the JWN manager and the ROX manager, it also manages to be a fast distribution that is capable of running on any computer.

Contrary to what you may believe, Quirky Linux is not a derivative of Puppy Linux such as Foxpup or NOP, but rather has been created from scratch using T2, without even having another operating system as a base, which is a great merit on the part of its creators.

I'm not really going to test it, since I sincerely believe that Quirky Linux is what it is for and I still haven't developed applications for Android today and I don't think I would give it the use it deserves. If you are an Android application developer, I recommend that you download it and tell us How have you been with her?

To whom this link, you have all the necessary files to install Quirky Linux on your computer, it is much heavier than Puppy Linux mainly due to the number of applications development that it brings.

    I read your website often and this distribution called me for one thing: Would it be useful to run Android applications? There are a couple of applications that I would love to be able to spend at the user level on a PC and they are only for that platform, and on mobile it is not the same (specifically, the wonderful "Oruxmaps").
    I am not a developer and my knowledge is at the user level, but through VirtualBox, it could be a good option.
    Thank you!
