Simply put, a "bug" is something, such as a program, that does not work as the developer intended.

If someone merely doesn't know how to use a program, or some setting is not to his or her liking, that is not a "bug".Usability or personal preference maybe, but not a "bug".

Lastly, Linux is not Windows.

Puppy is not Windows. Thankfully!!!!!

That depends if the program is intended for developers or "Linux Newbs", as the origional Developer...BarryK, intended.

Someone once said the about the same thing to me[to make puppy look/act more like windows]..I see his point now....


Just about every non-linux user Ive ever shown puppy to said exactly the same thing. Is this person a linux user now? Do you think they would be if it was a little more like Windows?

Somehow, convincing a load of Linux developers to produce something similar looking/acting to what they despise and detest, for free and as a hobby, is not something Im likely to achieve....however much it needs achieving.

Maybe I need some money!

Update...Searching through the archives, Ive found BarryK explaination his original purpose for starting Puppy Linux!!!

http://www.abclinuxu.cz/clanky/rozhovory/minidistro-puppy-linux-barry-kauler?page=1

Shouldnt we respect that and keep to his origional mission, despite our change of leader? For even BarryK was a "linux newb" once.
