Just for fun, I whacked togehter another logo. This is just a low-res png bitmap, the original is all-vector in CorelDraw, so it can be transformed into any format or resolution with perfect fidelity.

I echo Springer's sentiment too, Lobster.

I started on Puppy 2 because it was a larger number than 1. Gave the impression it was "the latest". But development still seems going on in 1.0.x

So what's the drum... 1 vs 2 for example? Is 1 more suitable for some purposes than others? Not discussed on the pages I've found.

If it is discussed in geek-speak threads, then I've closed them and moved on immediately.

Fairly important set of questions I believe.

And yes, let the readers of the front page of each of the many websites have an obvious box that briefly details this sort of stuff, thanks Smile

Very Happy


Richard in Australia

Thanks Lobster, that's a *great* update to the front page - there's a lot of stuff I wasn't even aware of that's very easily findable now. (And I've been using and trying various Puppy versions for a few months now, so that's surprising!)

Thnaks again for taking the time to do this - it's the sort of thing most of us couldn't have pulled off on our own.

PostPosted: Thu 05 Oct 2006, 23:57    Post subject: Congrats for Beta  

Congratulations to all for moving this build to beta!

As to puppylinux.org, there is a downloads page for community-built ISOs: http://puppylinux.org/user/downloads.php?cat_id=3

In the future, we can present side-by-side in the front pages the official and community builds of Puppy.

As to 1 vs 2, it's mainly a Linux kernel difference (2.4 vs 2.6), which means that the 2+ versions are able to handle newer devices. So users of old devices/PCs may be better off starting with the latest build of version 1, which is 1.09CE. Enhancing the version 1 build is the concern of 1.10CE effort described by Lobster.

If you want to help out in puppylinux.org, just register and email Puppian (the admin there) that you want to be admin, too.

Colour scheme and dog are great
I just do not think business has to be war . . .
How about a blue non combatants hat?

What you need is a dog in a tux. Think about it. That would take care of Tux, Puppy, and business.

Actually, the complete pup illustration (helmet and all) came from a clip-art library for which I own a legitimate license.

I'm not a graphic artist, but I can rework it with a tie and/or another hat (a Fedora? Not applicable Linux-wise, but cool otherwise) if you give me a few days.

As for the "no dogs" folks - I think those people need to take that up with Barry (and get a life!) - A dog is just a natural fit given that he chose to name the project "Puppy Linux". Dogs should strongly offend no one but Mohammedans, and I care less and less about what they find offensive.

Really, the choice was just opportunistic. Business is interesting partly because it contains elements of war (which is why SunTzu's Art of War is read mostly as a business book these days), diplomacy, cooperation/teamwork, and virtually every other aspect of human relationships. In this case, the tagline "ready for action!" just jumped out at me as the obvious choice, as it seemed to fit the illustration so well - and emphasize that PuppyPro includes the essentials professionals need today.

We could lose the helmet, but how about maybe the helmet *and* a tie? I personally don't think of the helmet as at all offensive or hostile. If the helmet is gone, we'll need another tagline, because, after all, nothing says "ready for action" like a TIE! Wink (Don't get me wrong, I actually *like* ties, I just think the helmet fit the whole theme better.)

(warning: minor political rant ahead, certainly NOT intended to provoke a flamewar, or even a response) As for the blue (UN) helmet - No. Just no. Any effort I want to be associated with must be far more honest, trustworthy, moral, and effective than the UN. (See the London Times' scathing analysis of just last week to review how evil the UN has been in recent years (well-written and probably worth a read regardless of your view of the UN): http://www.timesonline.co.uk/printFriendly/0,,1-531-2368626-531,00.htm)

The helmet will just be an unnecessary distraction. Modern business success is about
speed and strategy and timing, not large mass and raw power, that is the long-term
flawed strategy of MS and others. Puppy is kinda the MIghty Mouse of distros. How
about the dog's hair shown as if wind-blown due to motion?

As for ties, modern business less frequently requires them, and women in business
whom we'd also like to adopt Puppy rarely wear ties!

I would propose a cell phone/pda or a GPS or the like hanging from the Puppy's neck.

I am OK re. your rant re. the UN. It is less than a bad joke, it has disintegrated into a
divisive force in the world. Without massive reform it deserves no funding or respect.

IMHO, YMMV ... doc

I have a couple of questions for the community:

1) After checking out the beta, do you think I should include XFCE4 as it was in the alpha for the Professional version or just leave it at a smaller size with JWM only.

I'm just looking for a general consensus. Thanks in advance!

2.) I know the idea has been tossed around some on various threads about implementing a splash screen for Puppy rather than the numerous lines of scrolling text. If someone would like to step up to the challenge it would be greatly appreciated, especially if we could have the option of seeing the text (it is quite useful).

Thank-you Mark.

I took a punt and went and looked at your upload directory he used, and at the second download the checksums matched.

I love it Smile

Here we are, a screen cap of it running in XOrg at 1280x1024 (I think). There is just the one at the moment. It was taken after I did a couple of minor changes, and before I got stuck into downloading the extra apps I felt I would want, and do some customisation. Here is the full size image



You did a great job with it, Rhino. Thank you Smile

Everything seems to be going well in this beta Wink

If running from CD
copy the file pup_2.10.sfs to your hard drive
(Puppy will look there first and boot faster from HD then loading from CD)

. . . we could do with a wizard for that . . .

It really depends on how much more space it takes up, and if the additional bloat would slow it down any. I guess only you could answer that, mate.

I would like to see it. Would it be worth considering providing it as a dot pup?

Documentation on it might also be cool, to explain concisely why an alternative Window Manager could be handy, don't you think?

Pizzasgood is working on such a thingy, we talked about it at length in another thread and PM. Sounds like it might be what you are looking for.

I believe the concept would make it truly professional from the visual point; however it needs to be able to offer for selection whatever is available in pup_save files without having to be enabled to so do, perhaps?

AFAIK he is incorporating a similar one for shutdown as well.

We should wait and see, I guess Very Happy

Thanks for your work, didn't see your post when I replied to MU. And I'm being frustrated again by the forum server's "Critical error" message again Sad I did write this reply as soon as I posted the previous one in reply to Mark.
