I am moving in the direction of Social entreurnership with 'the foundation'

it seems to combine not 4 profit and some self suficent commercial goals

Agree with you there http://www.pbs.org/opb/thenewheroes/whatis/

It may be more of "large-scale social opportunity" though - sharing with the rest of the world the low-cost, energy-efficient Puppy solution to computing.

I ran across this article about some sort of subscription service for keeping embedded Linux applications updated. Might it be something to consider for Puppy?

The "thin client" computer someone sent Barry with Puppy preinstalled on its IDE flash card comes pretty close. A few forum posts have discussed putting Puppy on things like cell phones and palm pilots. And you might remember the guys who used Puppy to run their submarine. Doesn't that qualify as "embedded?"

But you really missed the whole point of the article, if you read it. The idea was to offer a service which would keep subscribers' applications up to date with the latest versions and patches etc., for a fee. I was only suggesting that this is an idea the Puppy foundation might want to consider. The idea doesn't have to be limited to embedded Puppy; anyone could subscribe. I'll admit that might not be as workable a business model as maintaining software for an embedded application, which would presumably have many identical units in the field to be kept updated.

So is it an embedded machine or a thin client ?

IMHO it qualifies as neither.

I think Barry already has a pretty good update schedule anyways....and it's free.

Being neither is good - it must be Puppy !!!

Let us see how many of those "thin clients" can become Puppies. A handful of thin clients for sale are here.
