Terrific - thanks! I see it's advanced 0.01, too!
One of the least discussed distros, but everyone I've shown it likes it. Vastly underrated.

Not so much a bug: it's always considerate of a developer to guess some starting values for the static network setup (DSL guesses them all, mostly correctly), however, in Happy, my gw values appear in the DNS boxes! Many distros can correctly determine the gw by probing and often find viable DNS. Of course, the 255.... string is almost universal for the netmask, so it only remains to place the gw in the IP box leaving the user a small change to the final value to establish instant connection. Shame that some developers overlook this small courtesy.

I just downloaded your distro and I gotta say it's really nice. It's very smooth and gorgeous to the eyes. Surprised it's not more popular. Keep up the good work. I'll be watching this one. By the way, where did "the hamsters" come from?

hi again,

to be honest i was surprised that finally someone answeared after 3 months.
finally you discovered happ-iness Smile

we are translating puppy 4.0 in greek. we are only 4 members in the team so we are going very slow.

for the new happy we wanted to use xfce 4.4.2 but it is full of bugs and very unstable so we have to continue with xfce 4.4.1 (is there a pet package for dingo?)

This one is just too good to rely on only four developers. Suggest you recruit more globally. If you're doing the Greek version, ask one of your near neighbours who use Cyrillic to translate into Russian and you'll increase market penetration many fold up through the Balkans and across the Urals. The Ruskies are terrific at coding, too. Maybe we can get a Puppy in assembler, then that opens up the entire burgeoning embedded market?

Hey just wanted to say that I am using your derivative for the live cd for everyone that comes over to our house to use. We keep a bunch or our nieces and nephews sometimes and they like to go online. But we don't want them going online using the windows software as it is so unstable so I've been going thru derivatives trying to find the perfect one and right now Happy is the one. So keep up the good work. Thanks

4 members in your team, Man I wish, I only have 1, Myself and I managed once to bring out 3 versions at once Smile
You also said slow, well lately I've been a bit slow and distracted, So I know what your talking about, keep up the most excellent work and looking forward to more "Happiness"

Hello Hamsters,

Have you seen this game, tavli3d? Might be a possibility for your next release.

that's good. but tavli on pc it hasn't the passion of the real tavli.
anyway, i think xfce 4.4.2 is very unstable. what do you think?
there isn't any pet package for dingo (xfce 4.4.10) ?

No I've got the iso and am using it. And loving it. I was speaking of a choice on you website that would change the language from Greek to English. No worries though.....Keep it up!!

To the Hamsters:

Hello again. We've been using Happy Linux for about a week and I thought everything was going great but my daughter told me the other day that Happy is always locking up. Granted they use flash and play online games quite a bit and chat a lot but it does seem to lock up a bunch. I've had to restart x a few times but I think I've only had to manually shut the computer off once.

It's 1 1/2 years old, it's called an e-machine t3516, 512 megs of ram. Don't know if you wanted any feedback but I thought I'd check. Otherwise it was great.
