Hi there everyone.

I have used Puppy in the past (don't ask me which version). The only problem now, is that I wanted to install puppy again and I found this site http://puppylinux.com. At first, I thought that site's theme was changed, but then I found this site http://puppylinux.org, which I ALREADY knew and remembered!

So my question is: Why are there two different sites? Are they two different projects?

Excuse me for being so silly, but I'm really confused.

I believe, that before Barry retired from Puppy, puppylinux.com was Barry's site and puppylinux.org was the community site.

After Barry retired, he gave puppylinux.com to Mick01 and the new Puppy Linux team. Mick01 then created a new, simpler site, puppylinux.com, more suitable for newbies who didn't know anything about Puppy. It is also up to date and maintained.

Puppylinux.org is still there as the community site. Not sure who maintains it, but at least parts of it seem more or less up to date.

edit: While there are a few recent posts, puppylinux.org also has a lot of very old, obsolete stuff on it.
