Sub_title: Thank You Barry!
 

I just wanted to say thanks to Barry for making Wary Puppy. I am still using an old Dell server with SCSI devices and Wary is the only Puppy that boots up on it. I use it to burn cd's, rescue my other operating systems when I screw them up, and just for good ole' fun.

It is interesting to note that Puppy burns cd's better than anything else. Brassero has never worked properly for me. I have had better luck with K3b and Xfburn but now they don't work well either. Well anyway, if you read this Barry, thank you.

I don't know if that's it. On the menu it says, "Burniso2cd". Maybe that's Pburn just listed differently.

Burniso2cd is different from Pburn. Burniso2cd only does one thing, burn bootable CDs and DVDs, but it seems to do it better than any other program I've tried. Pburn works well for the same thing, but I haven't used it much for burning Puppy CDs since Burniso2cd is such a no-brainer. Smile

Yes, Pburn is in all the puppies that I create. It is zigbert's baby. We are indebted to zigbert for many great apps in Puppy.

'burniso2cd' is a simple little app that I created years ago. Despite it's great age, it is still useful.

actually for older pc's 2.14X could be better than Wary, the reason why is that I still use an older Kernel and Xorg but still comes with the latest Firefox browser plus many improved GUI's, Wary is great but I still think 2.14X is a bit better, because unlike other puppy versions they are made on the spot where as 2.14X is basically the way that Barry might of upgraded puppy from the 2-5 series if he went that way. Its always been out of the limelight but its truly an amazing distro after I managed to change gcc and glibc a couple of times and it still works. Anyways here's a link http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=42553

@Ttuuxxx-Thanks for pointing that out. Actually I remember when that first came out and it is very nice. However, Wary Puppy just runs better on my machine. 2.14x doesn't boot up for me at all. I could put it on a flash drive and then use the cd to locate the flash drive but that's too much bother right now since Wary just boots right up.

I am very happy that there is still an interest in supporting older hardware at Puppy headquarters. Thanks again.
