HOT DOG Linux is only a Linux distribution in the broader sense. HOT DOG stands for
H orrible O bsolete T ypeface and D readful O nscreen G raphics for Linux, and the name says it all.

The project tries to on a modern basis look and feel to imitate older user interfaces. This includes Windows 3.1 Hot Dog Stand, Amiga Workbench, Atari ST GEM and the surface of classic Macs. A display with a low DPI value is recommended for use, as the graphics used are only available in bitmap format in a predefined size. HOT DOG Linux can be used either in 5: 4 landscape mode or in 3: 4 in portrait mode.

If you want to take a look at the current status of the project, you can fall back on the Slackware -current-based live media. These are currently available with the Amiga Workbench and Mac interfaces. Installation on a hard drive is also possible.

The project is at a comparatively early stage and can be described as experimental.
