PETget now PKGget

January 26, 2022 — BarryK

The traditional package manager in Puppy Linux is the "Puppy Package Manager", often just known as the "PPM".

EasyOS has a derivative of the PPM, named "PETget". However, I have never been entirely happy with that name, as the package manager can install virtually any type of package -- .deb, .rpm. .tgz, .tar.zst, .tar.xz, etc., as well as .pet packages.

It is labeled on the desktop as "petget", alongside "sfsget".

Finally decided to change it. It is now the PKGget package manager, and can still be referred to as the "PPM".
