Hey, Rob

That's a bit of a BLATANT tout, isn't it?

I hate spam! It's out of character for puppyusers, ....really....!

Thoughts on Puppy in general...
I have been here awhile, and the old Puppy versions did not have as many problems.
Point in fact, they just worked better. Puppy has grown more complex, this is normal.

Linus Torvalds was appalled by how large and bloated his kernel had grown.
He seemed to suggest that it would start to crumble from complexity and bloat.
I noticed a tomshardware.com report saying Windows7 rots like all other WinBlows.

CE distros. of Puppy should be "polished" versions with everything working.
Improvements and bug fixes are irrelevant when it keeps changing radically.
New problems are introduced and before a fix can be found, it doesn`t matter.
It all sounds too much like M$ ( the thought gives me shivers ).

New versions come so rapidly, that an "anchor post" version should be chosen.
Picked by stability and few reported problems, it would be the CE project.
Fewer CE versions, a better version to start with, and more time to polish it.
Folks building variants would naturally chose the CE version for it`s polish.
This would lend uniformity to Puppy and it`s variants that it lacks now.
Just in 4xx versions there is great differences, boots on one PC but not another.
So the CE version would come at the very end of each major version number.

Totally agree, Sunburnt Very Happy

My impression is there are many more who feel the same, but development keeps getting sideswiped.....

This is worthy of posting to techno's 4.4CE thread

How does a person get involved in the development of puppy? I'm a know nothing at the moment although I have been using puppy on and off for about two years (used to be strangerandapilgrim on here, long story as to why the switch). I begin CIT classes in January after switching majors and I would really like to be involved to see how this is done.

If you can point me in the right direction I would appreciate it!!

depends on what you want to contribute, coding you would find better examples on google, but building a version you would use woof,

If you want to compile, This is Barry's main configure line, It can change a bit but its good for about 70% of the programs.
./configure --prefix=/usr --sysconfdir=/etc --localstatedir=/var --build=i486-pc-linux-gnu
